Episode Narrative By late afternoon of the 13th, a prefrontal trough was located from northwest Roseau County (MN) to Crookston (MN) to Oakes (ND), while an upstream cold front approached the North Dakota/Canada border. By early evening, the cold front had quickly pushed down to a Minot (ND) to Hillsboro (ND) to Mahnomen (MN) line. Several thunderstorms formed near these surface boundaries, but did not last long. Model soundings showed an Inverted-V profile, which is favorable for stronger winds aloft to mix down to the surface. Therefore, the wind events were likely associated with dying thunderstorm cells.
Event Narrative Dozens of trees were damaged on the northwest shore of Lake Lizzie. Some of the trees were snapped in half. Several houses and cars were damaged from falling trees. The wind lasted less than 5 minutes and occurred after rain had started. An observation from a witness suggested this was a wet microburst.
