Episode Narrative A vertically stacked cold-core low pressure system moved into the Red River Valley and brought ideal conditions for low topped mini supercells. A negatively tilted 500 mb trough, diffluent height field, and a strong upper level disturbance were all present. At the surface, there was even a warm front east of the low, toward Hubbard and Wadena Counties.
Event Narrative This tornado resulted from a storm split near Big Sand Lake and tracked to the northeast for nearly 5 miles. It had several brief touchdowns before it lifted about 5 miles east-southeast of Emmaville and east of Mantrap Lake by 951 am CDT. No significant damage was reported or detected by aerial survey, though some tree branch damage was noted. Estimated maximum width was 75 yards with peak winds estimated to 80 mph.
