St. Paul was pelted by golf ball-sized hail Thursday afternoon, as a brief thunderstorm rolled through the Twin Cities.

The storm reached the east metro shortly before 4 p.m. and moved quickly into western Wisconsin. A severe thunderstorm watch remained in effect until 10 p.m. for the metro and outlying counties.

The hailstones appeared to grow larger as the storm moved eastward through the Twin Cities, with reports of one-inch hail in the far west metro and 2-inch hail on the western border of Wisconsin, according to the National Weather Service.

Storm cells continued to pop up elsewhere in Minnesota later in the evening, especially south of the Twin Cities.

Oh hail no…!
