Weather Summary for July 9

Severe Weather Summary for July 9, 2013

Around 6:30 pm CDT, two supercell storms crossed into northeast South Dakota. These storms had a history of producing large hail and even a small tornado in North Dakota. Even though one cell dissipated rather quickly once into South Dakota, the other storm continued to produce large hail and damaging wind gusts. Hail up to the size of baseballs fell in a narrow corridor from east of Spring Creek Colony in northern McPherson County, to Lily in western Day County. The storm finally dissipated around 8:30 pm CDT as it crossed into northwestern Codington County.
