Episode Narrative By early in the evening of June 3rd, a surface boundary had crept into the Red River Valley. Dew point values, which had held in the 50s for much of the day, managed to rise into the low to mid 60s right along the boundary. Showers and thunderstorms fired up early in the evening along the boundary, producing tornado and funnel reports.
Event Narrative This tornado originated in Walsh County, North Dakota, at 1707 CST. The tornado tracked intermittently for about three miles in Marshall County, where it snapped tree limbs and branches in several shelterbelts along its track. Peak winds were estimated at 80 mph.
