Episode Narrative A warm front pushed northward through eastern North Dakota during the afternoon of the 26th. By the early evening, low pressure had set up over northwest South Dakota, with the warm front extending to the northeast along a line from near Bismarck to near Devils Lake. The airmass in the warm sector was quite juicy, with surface dew points in the mid to upper 60s and temperatures in the low 90s. Thunderstorms fired up along the front and moved very slowly, which led to heavy rainfall and some flooding issues. Atmospheric conditions were also favorable for tornadoes, with the warm front, juicy air, and outflow boundaries from the thunderstorms. This led to a large number of funnel cloud reports, mostly because the rotating low clouds advanced through the larger population density centered around the Grand Forks/East Grand Forks area.
Event Narrative The funnel remained well above ground before it dissipated.
