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 trained spotter reported one foot of water over a curb, near the intersection of 81st and Central, in Spring Lake Park, Minnesota.
