4 Sep 2016, 8:03 pm

Severe thunderstorms producing up to golf ball size hail and 70-mph wind gusts impacted cities from Colorado to North Dakota on Sunday. In Wilton, North Dakota, strong winds snapped power poles, and even ripped a blade off of a wind turbine.

The severe threat will shift to the east overnight, impacting cities from northeast Nebraska, to northern Minnesota on Labor day. Storms will develop during the late afternoon hours on Monday from southeast South Dakota, into central Minnesota. The primary threats will be large hail and damaging wind gusts, but an isolated tornado or two can not be ruled out.

Day 2 SPC Severe Weather Outlook

On Tuesday, the severe threat will slowly shift into eastern Nebraska, northwest Iowa, and west central Wisconsin. Primary threats on Tuesday will be large hail and damaging wind gusts.

Flash flooding will also be a threat, as these storms will have plenty of moisture to work with. A widespread one to three inches will be common across the upper Midwest. Residents in the warned areas should keep a close eye on the forecast, especially those who have outdoor plans on Labor Day.
