Saturday Evening Forecast Discussion
Good evening! Strong thunderstorms have brewed up late this afternoon in northern South Dakota and continue to trek to the north. There will be a continued slight risk for severe weather through eastern South Dakota, southeastern North Dakota, and parts of northwestern Minnesota- this includes the Fargo Moorhead area. The main threat will be heavy rainfall and flash flooding, damaging wind gusts and hail, and even an isolated tornado is possible. These thunderstorms will likely continue into Sunday morning. Make sure to stay tuned to WDAY and WDAZ for the latest updates.
Wind: E/S 15-30 mph
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible to continue in northern North Dakota and northern Minnesota tomorrow morning. There is a slight risk for severe weather in parts of northern Minnesota tomorrow. The main threat will be heavy rainfall and flash flooding, damaging wind gusts and hail, and even an isolated tornado is possible. Eventually, this activity will move out of the area by the afternoon and evening and we should get some clearing as well.
Wind: S/W 10-20 mph
After Sunday, the next few days will cool down with highs into the upper 60s and 70s, but will return back into the mid 70s to lower 80s by Thursday and for the rest of the week. A trend of dry weather looks to continue Monday through the rest of next week as our weather pattern becomes less progressive.
Have a great weekend!
