Steady rain fell throughout the day yesterday along a southwest to northeast band, extending from south of Devils Lake to Grand Forks in North Dakota, and on toward Thief River Falls and Baudette in Minnesota. Rainfall amounts along this line generally ranged around a half an inch, with locally higher amounts. Further southward, thunderstorms formed over southeast North Dakota during the late afternoon hours and moved through the Fargo Moorhead area. These thunderstorms continued to move east-northeast, tracking through the lakes country of west central Minnesota during the early evening. These storms produced lightning and small hail, but much less rainfall.
