Severe Risk Monday from the Northern Great Plains to the Southern High Plains

5 Jul 2021, 2:00 pm

There is a large coverage area for severe storms.  Anywhere from North Dakota to West Texas could see some strong and severe storms. Since this is such a large coverage area, I will split it up into North and South. Here is the latest severe forecast.

Northern Plains

Severe Outlook

An isolated to scattered severe risk is setting up over the Northern High Plains today and tonight.  Places in west South Dakota will definitely want to be weather aware today as large hail and damaging winds will be likely.


Southern High Plains

Severe Outlook

The severe chances for the Southern High Plains will be much more isolated through tonight.  Many spots might not even get a severe storm, but it’s a chance nonetheless that we will be covering.


Storms will continue across the Southern Plains will be during the peak heating hours the rest of the afternoon and evening.  These storms should start to fall apart once the sun goes down, but some lingering showers and storms will hang around these areas until sunrise Tuesday.

More updates will be coming up all day on WeatherNation.
