Episode Narrative July 2nd was another hot and humid day, with high temperatures topping out in the 80s to low 90s with dew points in the low 70s. Thunderstorms fired up by mid to late afternoon near a surface cold front that was draped across northwest Minnesota. These thunderstorms congealed into a complex and tracked east-southeast along the U. S. Highway 2 corridor from Ada to Bemidji, producing steady reports of strong winds and major tree damage. This thunderstorm complex continued to propagate along the U. S. Highway 2 corridor east of Bemidji toward Duluth. By late evening, more thunderstorms formed across Otter Tail County and tracked east-southeast along the Interstate 94 corridor toward the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. These thunderstorms also produced reports of strong winds as well as large hail.
