Severe Thunderstorms Possible Late This Afternoon and Evening

Thunderstorms are likely today in northern North Dakota into northwest Minnesota, with the main threat heavy rain and small hail. Otherwise, most areas should remain dry today through mid to late afternoon, and it will become hot in southeast North Dakota into west central Minnesota where the mercury will rise to around 90. Low pressure will move to near Crookston around 7 pm this evening, and severe thunderstorms may develop rapidly along and north of this low and warm front. The best chance of severe storms containing isolated tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds should occur to the east of Grand Forks from Crookston to Fosston to Bemidji and points north. Any slight deviation of the low pressure track will impact where the most organized severe weather occurs later this afternoon and evening. Stay tuned to the latest statements on this potential severe weather event later today.
