KSTP Chief Meteorologist Dave Dahl said thunderstorms were moving through the Twin Cities metro area early Thursday afternoon, producing heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds. Those storms are expected to last through 3 or 3:30 p.m.

But Dahl said stronger storms are expected after 5 p.m. And he said the first batch of storms could cause enough heating to cause energy in the atmosphere to climb, setting the state for possible severe weather in the second wave.

Dahl said the threat of severe weather in the metro exists from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, with the greatest threat occurring between 6 and 8 p.m.

The National Weather Service Thursday afternoon issued a flood warning for the Redwood River near Redwood Falls from Thursday evening through the weekend.

Minor flooding is forecast.
