Episode Narrative The afternoon of Friday, May 18th, the atmosphere was fairly dry near the boundary layer, but due to strong daytime heating, temperatures in the upper 80s, to lower 90s, steep lapse rates developed, and with ample instability above the boundary layer, thunderstorms developed. These storms were high based, but with the steep lapse rates, and modest shear, large hail formed along with several severe wind gusts. More thunderstorms developed during the evening and caused large hail and severe wind gusts from Kandiyohi to Stearns, and Todd Counties.
Event Narrative A Minnesota Department of Transportation Wind Sensor measured a wind gust of 68 knots.
