Episode Narrative A strong early Spring cold front moved across eastern Minnesota during the afternoon of Sunday, April 10th. Ahead of this cold front, strong southerly winds and instability made for a moderate risk of severe weather based the Storm Prediction Center and atmospheric dynamics. After 2 pm, a few supercells developed rapidly from Red Wing, Minnesota, northward across Menomonie and Rice Lake, Wisconsin. These supercells rapidly became severe and started to produce large hail. One of the thunderstorms produced two EF-1 tornadoes near Augusta. These storms quickly moved out of west central Wisconsin by 6 pm.
