Heavy thunderstorms were associated with a compact, but strong area of low pressure and a sharp cold font. The heaviest rain fell from just north of Mille Lacs to International Falls, with some places seeing over three inches in 24 hours. More modest rains fell with a line of thunderstorms that moved across central Minnesota in the evening hours of the 11th. Some tree damage was reported in Cass and Crow Wing County, including some medium-sized trees down on the south shore of Pelican Lake to the south of Breezy Point. In addition, a funnel cloud was reported in Kandiyohi County 3 miles north of Pennock. In the wake of the cold front, cold and breezy air rushed in across the state and afternoon temperatures in the Twin Cities were 20 degrees colder on June 12th.

Below are storm reports and public information statements and storm reports from the National Weather Service.
