‘Ring of Fire’ pattern could bring severe weather, flooding to Midwest

A so-called "Ring of Fire" weather pattern will set up across the Upper Midwest starting Monday. This happens when a large high-pressure system, such as the one bringing record heat to the eastern U.S. this week, forces thunderstorms to go around the edge of it. Portions of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Wisconsin face the risk of severe weather and flooding.
