It might be hard to imagine looking outside (snow) but this is Severe Summer Weather Awareness Week across North Dakota. During the meteorological summer months of June…July…and August of 2016 the National Weather Service in Grand Forks issued 35 Tornado Warnings and 210 Severe Thunderstorm Warnings throughout eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota. Warning Coordination Meteorologist Greg Gust with the National Weather Service says this season could be even more active with plenty of moisture to the south.

Last year…North Dakota saw 22 tornadoes…down from 31 the year before. There were 60 twisters in 2010.

A statewide Tornado “test” Warning was held on Wednesday.
