Severe Weather Outbreak Possible This Afternoon and Tonight

Severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and tonight across all of eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota. Thunderstorms are expected to develop by this afternoon in the Devils Lake Basin, then spread into the rest of eastern North Dakota by sunset.  Any storms that develop late this afternoon and evening have the potential to produce large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. The greatest tornado threat will be near a surface low pressure center and warm front that will extend from around Jamestown, to near Grand Forks into northwest Minnesota this evening. Thunderstorms will likely move into western Minnesota overnight with damaging winds and large hail becoming the main threat after sunset. Stay tuned to the latest information on this potential severe weather outbreak later this afternoon and evening.
