An outbreak of severe weather, including a few tornadoes, threatens to ruin the holiday weekend across the North Central U.S.

The first round of severe weather will be triggered by a storm system emerging from the Rockies rattling western North Dakota, northwestern South Dakota and far eastern Montana through Saturday evening.

The strongest thunderstorms will be capable of producing damaging winds, hail and blinding downpours. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Isolated severe thunderstorms will also target Lower Michigan to close out Saturday.

Late Sunday is when a more widespread severe weather outbreak will ignite, putting residents and visitors enjoying the Labor Day holiday weekend in harm’s way.

“We are forecasting an organized severe weather event extending from the Upper Midwest to the Missouri Valley and central Plains, initiating by late afternoon Sunday and continuing through Sunday evening,” stated AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions Expert Senior Meteorologist Scott Breit.

More specifically, the cities of St. Cloud, Minneapolis; Sioux Falls and Mitchell, South Dakota; Grand Island and Omaha, Nebraska; and Sioux City, Iowa, will be threatened late Sunday.
