Episode Narrative A weak area of surface low pressure moved into extreme southeast North Dakota late on the afternoon of the 17th. Out ahead of the low, surface dew point values surged into the middle 60s with temperatures right around 80. One thunderstorm cell flared up over southeast Richland County, about 10 miles west of Fairmount, and continued to track nearly straight to the east. As the cell reached the Tenney/Nashua area, a brief tornado touchdown occurred. A second tornado also touched down near Doran.
Event Narrative A brief tornado touchdown in an open field just east of highway 75 was reported to the sheriff's office. Peak winds were estimated at 80 mph.
