Episode Narrative A very unstable air mass was present the afternoon of June 17th, when a surface warm front laid across portions of southeastern Minnesota. Initially, thunderstorms developed just south of this warm front near Albert Lea and moved northeast. The thunderstorms quickly became tornadic north of Albert Lea, near Geneva, where a touchdown was observed near the community. There were several reports of funnel clouds throughout the early evening with one more official touchdown near Waseca. In addition to the tornadoes, there were several reports of golf ball or larger size hail stones. Later in the evening, more severe thunderstorms developed across east central Minnesota where large hail was reported southeast of the Twin Cities metro area.
