Episode Narrative By the early evening of the 17th, a triple point was located near Valley City, North Dakota. From this spot, a cold front extended to the southwest, a warm front extended out to the southeast, and an occluded front extended up toward Devils Lake, North Dakota. Thunderstorms fired up across southeast North Dakota and west central Minnesota during the early evening and produced large hail, strong winds, and a funnel cloud.
Event Narrative A weak tornado touched down just west of highway 9 and tracked intermittently eastward for about three miles. The tornado broke down several large tree branches and a few tree limbs in shelterbelts along its path. Peak winds were estimated at 80 mph.
