TVN made an all night grind, leaving Norman, OK at 8 p.m. Monday night and stopping only for gas--eventually chasing a tornadic supercell in northern Divide county, North Dakota and intercepting the first of 5 tornadoes!  It was evident that the tornado threat would reside along an occluded boundary/ warm front very near the Canadian border in northern North Dakota, where low-level shear was maximized and dewpoints/ cloud bases were lower.  We watched 4 other tornadoes, 2 of which crossed into Saskatchewan, Canada within just a couple of miles!  We, unfortunately, could not cross the border and had to watch them from the border crossing!  Check out our video below!

Tomorrow has the potential for numerous tornadic supercells for much of Wisconsin, extreme southeastern MN and the extreme southern upper peninsula of Michigan!  TVN is surging eastward tonight and will be in position for tomorrow!  Sign-up for the webisode launch now at http://TVNweather.com
