Episode Narrative Thunderstorms began to develop across portions of southern Minnesota the night of August 7th before midnight. A strong low level jet and deep moisture advection caused several waves of thunderstorms to develop along a line from near Hutchinson Minnesota, to the southern Twin Cities metro area, and into portions of west central Wisconsin. Two to four inches of rainfall was common in a 6 hour period, with locally four to six inches in a narrow band from the southwestern portions of the Twin Cities to portions of West Central Wisconsin, from Prescott to Eau Claire.
Event Narrative A trained spotter reported several inches of rainfall over a short period of time around Prescott, Wisconsin.
