U.S. NATIONAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
WED 20 August 2014
...Slight Risk for severe weather across portions of ND, SD, NE, MN, and IA...
Severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening across southeastern ND, eastern SD, northeastern NE, southwestern MN, and northwestern IA. These storms will be capable of isolated to scattered damaging wind gusts, isolated to scattered large hail, and a few tornadoes this afternoon and evening. An upgrade to Moderate Risk cannot be ruled out in future updates across portions of SD where large hail greater than 2" in diameter is possible. In addition to the severe weather threat, the combination of heat and humidity will make outdoor activities strenuous for the next several days in the St. Louis metro.
Elsewhere, no significant hazards of concern are expected.
