As you can see by this map, a good chunk of North Dakota is in a Level 2 threat for severe weather.  The favored area is parts of central North Dakota and eastern North Dakota.

It appears that Bismarck Mandan is right on the edge of the Level 2 threat for severe thunderstorms.

Cities east of Bismarck in our listening area like Steele, Napoleon, Wishek, Tappen, and Dawson will have a slightly better chance of seeing severe weather on Sunday.

The main threat from these storms will be large hail up to golf ball size, damaging winds up to 60 miles per hour, and a tornado or two can't be ruled out.  These storms are expected to develop after 1 pm on Sunday and continue into the evening.  These storms could also contain some heavy rain.

Our active weather pattern is expected to continue into early next week with more chances for showers and thunderstorms on both Monday and Tuesday.

We will continue to monitor the situation but it would be a good idea to be weather-aware on Sunday afternoon.
