2017 Tropical Season Outlook Webinar

Thunderstorms Tuesday for the Northern and Central Plains
Strong to severe thunderstorms are forecast today across the North Central US along and ahead of a cold front and area of low pressure moving across the region. Conditions will be favorable for large hail and damaging winds with these storms, but an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. The primary threat will exist during the evening and stretch from eastern portions of South Dakota, northeastward, into portions of central and south-central Minnesota and northern Wisconsin. Elsewhere, the threat for severe impacts will be less, but there will still be a risk for severe wind and hail.
