Episode Narrative Thunderstorms developed along the leading edge of very strong instability across east-central Minnesota Saturday morning. These storms moved across the southern Twin Cities Metro area and produced large hail and damaging winds. There were several reports of large trees blown down from New Prague, eastward to Northfield and Zumbrota in southeast Minnesota.
Very heavy rainfall also accompanied these storms, but most reports were of ponding of water on area streets due to poor drainage. A few strong storms developed near St. Cloud during the afternoon and produced some marginal severe hail reports.
