Tornadoes More severe weather for the northern Plains!

More severe weather for the northern Plains!

Another multi-day severe weather event will likely kick off this afternoon  across portions of Wisconsin, southern Minnesota and the eastern Dakotas.  Tomorrow appears to hold the best chances for widespread severe weather, though,  as an intense impulse of mid-level energy will be moving out of northern  Nebraska and into the eastern plains of South Dakota and southern  Minnesota. With surface winds expected from the east and southeast, this would  provide the necessary low-level shear and abundant moisture typical of an  environment ripe for supercell development. Right now it appears that the  greatest tornado threat will exist over most of eastern South Dakota into  extreme northwest Iowa and southern Minnesota -- not surprisingly, given the  history of this storm season. These storms will likely be capable of extremely  large hail as well. There will undoubtedly be a number of northern Plains  chasers covering the activity over the next several days, and you can always  follow along on the Live page.
