Episode Narrative An upper level disturbance moved across central North Dakota, with numerous showers and thunderstorms forming around it. The upper level flow was fairly weak, but the low levels held a very juicy airmass, with dew points in the low to mid 60s. This set the stage for slow moving and heavy rain producing thunderstorms. A broad area of one to three inches of rain fell from near Havana, ND, through the Wahpeton/Breckenridge area, to near Barnesville, MN. Within this area, locally heavy rain amounts of up to 7 inches were reported at Abercrombie, ND, and at Kent, MN. This caused rapid flooding of streets, roads, farmland, and other low lying areas.
Event Narrative There were several reports of 3.50 to 4 inches of rain over northern Wilkin County, in an area bounded roughly from Barnesville to Rothsay to Fergus Falls to Abercrombie. Some roads were under water.
