Episode Narrative Early in the morning of the 23rd, a squall line moved from central North Dakota, across the Fargo Moorhead area, and into portions of west central Minnesota. It was another warm and muggy night, with dew points still in the low 70s across southeast North Dakota and west central Minnesota. This set up a good instability and moisture gradient from Bismarck (ND) to Aberdeen (SD) into west central Minnesota. The main storm complex was aided by the low level jet, which also focused along the instability gradient. Most of the severe reports came from strong wind gusts.
Event Narrative Several trees were blown down.
