Episode Narrative A strong early October low pressure system tracked north-northeast through the western high plains into southern Manitoba, with a tight surface pressure gradient to its east. As clearing spread into eastern North Dakota and portions of northwest Minnesota on the 7th, very strong wind gusts mixed down to the surface. Many stations experienced sustained winds around 40 mph or wind gusts greater than 58 mph. The highest wind gust was 71 mph, which was reported near Northwood, North Dakota and Euclid, Minnesota. The strong winds resulted in many downed trees, scattered power outages, and minor shingle damage to homes.
