Area Weather: Storms roll through with little damage reported
Strong storms moved through the area on Thursday afternoon and evening. Golf ball/baseball size hail was reported in the Fergus Falls area. In addition, two funnel clouds were spotted in the Alexandria area. They dropped down and went right up. No injuries or damage were reported, thankfully.
Of course, on Wednesday, tornadoes moved through the Austin area. Thankfully, there were no injuries, but there was a great deal of damage.
Morris hit 90 degrees for a high on Thursday. Some thunderstorms rumbled through the area, but no real damage was reported. Thankfully, with the unstable air there was no severe weather reported in the Morris area.
It looks like a repeat of last weekend for this coming weekend for the first day of summer and for Father's Day. It should be great on Saturday, but we could see a shower on Sunday. It shouldn't ruin the backyard grilling for the dads!
Rainbows are simply beautiful multi-colored arcs of light in the sky. Rainbows occur when it's both raining and the sun is shining simultaneously. To see a rainbow, you must stand with your back to the sun, otherwise it will not be visible.
