Parts of the state could see severe weather this evening.
Mike Fowle is a Meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Aberdeen. He expects isolated and scattered storms to form in the south central and southwestern parts of the state. He says storms will also likely form along the North Dakota and South Dakota border and expand along a cold front later this evening, affecting the eastern part of the state.
“And then any storms that do develop will have the potential to become severe,” Foul says. “We’re looking for the potential for some very large hail, perhaps golf ball size or larger, strong winds, and then there is a really low risk for a tornado as well. So yeah it could be a rather active evening.”
Fowle says later tonight the storms could transition to heavy rainfall, bringing with them the potential for flash flooding.
