Murky skies persisted over the Twin Cities on June 14, 2012 with waves of thunderstorms.

Strong thunderstorms associated with a warm front moved across central and southern Minnesota during the morning of June 14th. Some of these thunderstorms were very effective hail producers and there were numerous reports of pea to quarter-sized hail over the heart of the Twin Cities over lunch time as well as other locations in central Minnesota including St. Cloud.

Hail from dime to a few that was quarter sized fell at the St. Paul Campus of the University of Minnesota. The only damage seen so far from the hail is to tender plants, including some holes punched through hosta leaves on campus.

Listed below are Local Storm Reports and Public Information statements from the National Weather Service.
