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 A tornado tracked to the north-northeast for nearly 3 miles and lifted about 1 mile east-southeast of Lake George by 1003 am CDT. Numerous large trees were knocked down or uprooted across Schoolcraft Lake Road and along county road 4. Peak wind speeds were estimated at 105 mph with a maximum width of 150 yards.
