Episode Narrative On the morning of the 30th, a severe thunderstorm produced a bow echo, which moved along a Gwinner (ND) to Rothsay (MN) line. Strong wind gusts occurred along the line, which resulted in several reports of tree damage. Another severe thunderstorm developed later in the morning and tracked from Alice to Fairmount (ND). The same thunderstorm also clipped the southwest portion of Grant County in Minnesota. These thunderstorms were aided by the low level jet, which focused into southeast North Dakota and west central Minnesota.
Event Narrative The strong wind gusts were measured by a MNDOT RWIS site.
