Episode Narrative A strong low level jet and good warm advection helped to spawn a couple strong thunderstorms in the early morning hours of the 12th. Then there was a brief break before strong thunderstorms began to flare up again by the early afternoon. Thunderstorms kept firing north of a warm front located over northeast South Dakota and southern Minnesota, as the low level jet and warm advection stay strong through the day. These storms produced very heavy rainfall rates and some flash flooding as well as sporadic reports of strong winds into the evening.
Event Narrative This tornado began in Sargent County at 834 pm CDTcdt, where it had an approximate 1 mile path. It continued in Richland County for about one additional mile, for a total path length of about 2 miles. Peak winds were estimated at 80 mph.
