Episode Narrative A sharp edge of marginal instability helped cause an area of thunderstorms to develop along the Minnesota-Iowa border near Jackson, and move eastward during the late afternoon. Wind shear values were around 40 kts, which aided in the development of several long lived mesocyclones that caused hail stones to grow above severe levels. A few of the hail stones grew to golf ball size.
