Numerous thunderstorms developed along a strong cold front as it pushed east across north central and northeast South Dakota during the early morning hours of July 14th. Very heavy rains occurred with rainfall amounts of nearly 3 inches in some places.

A line of storms moving across north central South Dakota during the early morning hours on the 14th became heavy rainfall producing thunderstorms for northeastern South Dakota.
