Episode Narrative A strong cold front moved across eastern Minnesota during the late afternoon of Tuesday, August 31st. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms developed along the Iowa border and moved northeast across South Central, and into East Central Minnesota. Most of the storm only produced very heavy rainfall and gusty winds. However, a few storms caused damage to a hog farm building, and trees damage in Albert Lea, Minnesota. The storms quickly moved into west central Wisconsin during the evening hours but were non severe.
Event Narrative Several large trees and power lines were blown down on the northside of Albert Lea, Minnesota. The local AWOS airport measured a wind gust of 59 mph near the same time.
