The region could see hail as big as golf balls this afternoon or evening, according to a National Weather Service report.
A storm system is expected to develop along a cold front in central North Dakota between 4-7 p.m. and move east into northwestern Minnesota as the evening progresses, the weather service said. The storms could produce large hail and winds up to 60 mph. There is a low chance that a tornado could form.
The highest risk areas are near Devils Lake, along the James River Valley and along the Red River Valley, the report said. Storms are expected to weaken by the time they reach northwestern Minnesota, although there is still a chance for quarter-sized hail.
