Severe Weather Forecast Through Midweek – Active in the Northern Plains
Pockets of severe weather are possible today (Monday) in the Plains and Northeast, with active weather expected to continue through Independence Day in the Upper Midwest. Hail greater than 1″ in diameter and wind gusts above 60 mph are the main threats, but an isolated tornado may occur later this evening (Monday).
A warm front and low pressure center moving into the northern Plains will be the focus for thunderstorm development in the early evening. Storms are expected to blossom throughout the evening, taking advantage of heat, humidity, and low level wind shear.
The system moves slowly through the Upper Midwest on Tuesday and Wednesday, keeping severe weather in the forecast through Independence Day.
