Episode Narrative Unusually warm and humid air remained in place during the early morning hours of the 14th, especially along and south of the Interstate 94 corridor. Temperatures hovered in the lower 70s with dew point temperatures in the upper 60s to around 70. A line of thunderstorms moved east across southeast North Dakota into west central Minnesota, producing mainly strong wind gusts.
Event Narrative This tornado mainly affected portions of Lyons State Forest. Several poplar trees were snapped or blown down across CR 26. A damage path was evident further back into the trees on both sides of the county road, but access to view additional damage away from the road was not possible due to poor road conditions and high water. Peak winds were estimated from 75 to 80 mph.
