Episode Narrative An early morning outflow boundary that was associated with thunderstorms that moved across western, and into eastern Minnesota, stalled across south central and east central Minnesota around noon. This boundary aided in the initiation of thunderstorms across south central Minnesota during the early afternoon hours of July 7th. Due to weak winds aloft and high moisture content of the atmosphere, the storms moved very slowly to the northeast, with some training in portions of south central and east central Minnesota during the afternoon. An observer in south central Minnesota recorded 4.10 inches of rainfall in less than two hours near the town of Granada. Due to the excessive rainfall, basement flooding was reported in the town of Granada. Several other locations across south central Minnesota had rainfall amounts of two to three inches. Around the Twin Cities, a few thunderstorms produced locally two to three inches near Bloomington which causes some minor street flooding.
Event Narrative A local weather observer reported 4.10 inches of rainfall in less than two hours. A local creek rose a few feet in less than an hour and caused some basement flooding in the town of Granada.
