Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system deepened as it moved north into central Minnesota by the afternoon of May 22nd. A cold front extended to the south from the surface low, while a warm front slowly pushed north into far northern Wisconsin. Thunderstorms developed along and near both fronts and swept across far eastern Minnesota and much of Wisconsin. The combination of strong vertical wind shear and an unstable atmosphere contributed to supercell thunderstorms. The storms produced five tornadoes in Price County, and eleven total tornadoes across the entire state of Wisconsin. The 11 tornadoes was the 10th highest one-day tornado total for the state of Wisconsin on record. The storms also produced damaging winds and large hail across much of northwest Wisconsin.
Event Narrative Several trees were blown down.
