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 six hour period, with the heaviest rain being four to six inches in the southwest metro, especially near Chaska. Several reports of flooding were received, with stalled cars and significant street flooding in low lying areas. In addition to the flooding, several large hail reports were also received from the strongest storms.
Event Narrative A trained spotter measured 4.00 inches of rainfall overnight.
