Episode Narrative In the early morning hours of the 27th, an 850mb warm front was draped west to east across southeast North Dakota and west central Minnesota. A strong low level jet kept redeveloping bands of strong thunderstorms, which dropped heavy amounts of rain from Moorhead to Perham to Wadena. A wide swath of two to six inches of rain fell along this line, which resulted in water flowing over fields and roads as well as streets in towns. The highest rainfall total, 5.75 inches, fell about three miles north-northwest of Wadena, Minnesota.
