Heat, humidity could trigger storms this evening

WATERTOWN, S.D. (KWAT) — It could be a stormy night across the region tonight.

The National Weather Service says northeast South Dakota, southeast North Dakota and west-central Minnesota are under an enhanced or moderate risk of seeing severe storm development tonight.

Forecaster Ryan Leake is with the National Weather Service in Aberdeen.

He says the storm chances have been rising.

Tremendous heat and humidity today will be the trigger point for severe storms.

Which will likely begin to pop up around supper time.

Leake says it would be wise to keep your ear on the radio tonight for the latest information on any severe storm development.
