The strange thing about last nights storms were that the NWS did not issue any watches in advance of last nights action. I also don’t believe the Twin Cities were under any type of severe threat yesterday. Usually the NWS is over cautious. I think they forecasted “light showers”. I know that the heating and the humidity of the day caused these to bubble up, and trying to predict the weather is a crap shoot sometimes, and I am a fan of the NWS in what they do.
