A tornado watch was in effect Tuesday until 9 p.m. across Minnesota’s midsection as intense thunderstorms popped up across the area.
The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning after radar indicated a storm capable of producing a tornado north of Willmar about 5:15 p.m., but there were no reports of a touchdown.
A spotter saw a funnel cloud near Morris about 4:15 p.m., but no touchdown.
Spotters also reported 3-inch hail near New London and 2.5-inch hail near Morris. Hail that landed in a yard near Lake Andrew was the size of a softball.
