On this day in weather history...

2004: A strong cold front whipped up winds of up to 55 miles an hour over southern Minnesota. The wind caused black clouds of soil to lift into the air and creating soil erosion and reduced visibility. Some old-timers remarked that it reminded them of the Dust storms from the 1930's Dust-Bowl era.

2002: Baseball-sized hail fell in Eagan causing small craters in the soft ground and broken windows in apartments.

1977: Tornado at the mouth of the Minnesota River.
