Episode Narrative The evening of August 8th, a very unstable air mass was in place across the upper Midwest with a warm front draped across the Twin Cities area, then eastward across west central Wisconsin. Initially, a strong cap suppressed thunderstorm development until around sunset as a cool front moved across east central Minnesota, and developed a supercell in the western part of Hennepin County. The supercell moved across the northern Twin Cities metro, then into Wisconsin.
Event Narrative A storm survey determined that thunderstorm wind gusts of nearly 65 mph caused two dozen trees to be blown down in the City of Lexington, and also in extreme southeast Blaine, from the intersection of Restwood Road and Syndicate Avenue, to just west of 85th Avenue and Lexington Avenue. All trees were toppled from north to south.
