4 Aug 2019, 4:19 am

A cold front moving through the Northern High Plains today will bring a chance for strong to severe storms. Damaging winds and large hail will be the main weather risks.  Here is the very latest forecast.

Severe Outlook

Areas of the Dakotas and northern areas of Minnesota will have the highest chance for severe storms today.  A slight risk has been issued for cities like Rapid City, Bismarck and Fargo.  This means scattered severe storms are in the forecast.

Severe Risks

Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary threats.  Hail could be up to 2″ in diameter and wind gusts could be over 70 mph within some of today’s storms.  You will want a backup plan in place if you have any outdoor activities.


The timing of today’s storms will be this afternoon and evening.  We could see a few storms in the morning, but the severe risk will be highest during the peak heating hours of the afternoon.  Keep checking with WeatherNation for more updates.
