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 The wind gust was measured by a MNDOT RWIS sensor along U.S. Highway 2 west of Fisher.
