Mark Hot humid air Meteorologist and some hail ]une 12 Weather Column: We closed out the weekend with very warm and humid air across much of the state of Minnesota. Temperatures across southwestern Minnesota hit 100 degrees on Sunday from Appleton, Canby, to Madison. Montevideo and Granite Falls were close behind with readings of 98 degrees in both locations for the daytime high temperatures. A cold front arrived late Sunday afternoon and this helped spark severe weather across much of cen- tral and west central Minnesota. A severe thunderstorm watch was issued as some cells even reach- ing severe thunderstorm warning levels with large hail and damag- ing winds. One inch diameter hail was reported in Grant County near Elbow Lake and in Pope County in the Glenwood area. Funnel clouds were reported in Stevens County near Donnelly and also in Pope County 4 miles SE of Sedan. There were reports of wind damage with some trees down across the area. We could see some additional showers and thunderstorms arriv- ing for the Father's Day Weekend. Do stay alert to changing weather conditions this weekend. At this stage this is projected to arrive late Saturday night into mainly early Sunday. • Beginning July x, find the FREE "Harvest Bank Mobile m your app store.
