Took the dog out for bedtime walk around 10 in Eagan. Sky was lighting up so frequently it almost felt like it was 630pm. Quite the lightning performance.

Radar indicated rotation set off the tornado warning. The signature went away quickly, and the warning ended early. Already clearing out in North MPLS.

It was all the intense here, then some rain, then *poof* gone. *sigh* Nice brief light show, but that was about it. Disappointing.

1.41 inches of rain in 31 minutes at my place in Brooklyn Park. No hail, only one really good blast of wind.
I was watching the radar and have to admit I was a bit surprised by the Tornado Warning. There had been some possible signatures farther west with an earlier Tornado warning, but couldn't quite figure out why they set that one. I'm not going to suggest I know better than the NWS crew in Chanhassan (in case you're wondering, I've actually met several of them, been out for drinks after severe storm conference with a few where the decision on when/whether to sound a warning was a topic, etc) especially not to look at a radar display and make that call, but I can usually see what the NWS was looking at after the warning is sounded and at least say "OK, I can see why" which I couldn't do this time.

While no tornadic activity around the metro, there was on the SW edge of the system. The part that went through the metro showed some as it went through central MN, and there was some rotation as it went through the metro across pretty much the whole line.

There was certainly rotation out to the west as the line approached, but by the time that warning was issued, that had mostly tapered off and was more of a straight-line/bow echo situation.

SiouxFalls with major damage from a tornado tonight. It hit the heart hospital and then moved into the city. It tore the roof off a Best Buy. No word on injuries or deaths yet.

My sister-in-law lives about a mile from the hospital that got hit. She took they're kids to the basement around 11:30 pm. Sounds like there may have been an issue with warning sirens as many were not going off.

The mayor admitted human error on that one. Hopefully she has a weather radio or a cell phone, as those alerts worked. Because I live in the country, a weather radio is critical for me as I can't really hear much of the weather outside other than hard rain.

I'd get one too if I lived in a rural area. We live in South St. Paul so we are really close to downtown St. Paul. I don't feel a need for one so close to an urban area.

Is there any outrage/outcry in Whioux Falls over the error with the sirens? I can only imagine what would happen if it happened here.

Just a few. Luckily, with only a few injuries, I think it will just pass. They have now confirmed 3 tornados touched down last night. One of the local weather guys shot back at people on twitter who complained that they kept interrupting programs as the storms moved closer. He said this is why we do it. My issue on the farm, is we have had over 5.5 inches of rain in the last 3 days, with another 1-2 expected tonight.

A little over 4 inches of rain again last night. That brings the weeks total to a little over 9 1/2 inches of rain this week.. :shock: Not going to make the harvest season an easier this year. :censored:

Posts like this are a humbling reminder for city folk like me. I don't think of things like the harvest when we get rains like this as I have zero exposure to farming. I hope all goes well with you and your farm.

ALL the rain today, then NO rain today after work. Difficult visibility at times, and sometimes it was block by block as to how hard the rain (if any) was falling. That's how erratic it was in Plymouth.

Radar indicated a mean-looking thunderstorm headed our way, but it fell apart just before it got here.
