Severe Hail and Damaging Winds for the Northern Plains

A cold front moving into the Northern Plains will spark severe storms this afternoon into tonight. The storms will mainly produce large hail and damaging wind gusts but a tornado or two is not out of the question. The storms will develop into an MCS ( Mesoscale Convective System) overnight which will move Southeast into Minnesota and Wisconsin before dying out. While I am not showing any risk for severe weather into Minneapolis or Wisconsin, I see gusty winds and very heavy rain overnight as the complex of storms moves southeast. It’s not out of the question the storms make it all the way to Chicago Friday Morning.
