Severe Weather Possible in the High Plains and Upper Midwest
An active Jet Stream pattern across the northern tier of the nation will be the focus for severe weather this week, similar to last week. There is a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms in parts of Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota today (Monday), centered near a warm front and low pressure center. Monsoonal storms may also produce a few severe storms later this afternoon and evening.
As a stronger low develops in Canada near the front, a more organized area of severe thunderstorms is expected to develop and move through the region into the middle of the week. There is a slight risk for severe thunderstorms in Montana and North Dakota Tuesday, shifting eastward to include Minnesota and Wisconsin Wednesday.
