Overview

Multiple rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms impacted North Dakota and Minnesota Saturday afternoon (July 9) through Monday (July 11).  The first round of storms developed across northern North Dakota Saturday afternoon and spread south and eastward across the area through Saturday Night, producing hail up to baseball size and damaging winds.  The active weekend continued on Sunday as thunderstorms developed to the west and organized into an intense line that passed through the region late Sunday evening into early Monday morning, producing damaging winds and heavy rainfall.  Areas of showers and thunderstorms persisted into Monday evening, most focused across far southeast North Dakota through Minnesota lakes country, resulting in flooding.
