Episode Narrative An area of surface low pressure tracked from near Cooperstown (ND) in the early afternoon to near Detroit Lakes (MN) by early evening. Abundant sunshine along and south of this line contributed to a healthy amount of instability through the afternoon into the evening.

Event Narrative Lots of 0.50 to 0.75 inch hail fell.
