MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Another round of storms is expected in the Twin Cities metro Sunday afternoon just hours after severe weather knocked out power for thousands, downed trees and flooded streets.
The National Weather Service says that storms will likely pop up over the Twin Cities and parts of western Wisconsin during the afternoon. While the storms aren’t expected to be as powerful or widespread as the line that moved through in the morning, damaging winds and hail are still possible.

Severe storms began moving through northwestern Wisconsin around 3:30 p.m. The storms brought wind gusts up to 60 mph, lightning and hail.
Further south, along the Interstate 90 corridor, storms could fire up in the evening hours as a cold front swings east. Heavy rain, hail and strong winds are possible.
The storms that rolled over central Minnesota earlier in the day left 130,000 households without power. By mid-day, power had been restored to many, but there was no estimate as to when all customers would have service restored.
