The National Weather Service has canceled the tornado warning for central Steele County, ND, as that storm has weakened below severe limits and doesn't pose a threat. The warning had been set to expire at 9:45 p.m.

NWS had also issued a tornado warning for northern Grand Forks county, but that expired at 8:15 p.m. Heavy rain and some hail were reported from the thunderstorm that moved from west of Grand Forks to the Warren and Roseau areas.

Heavy rain near Hope and Luverne caused water to flow over some county roads, law enforcement reported. That has caused NWS to issue a flood advisory for Steele County effective until 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. Runoff from that excessive rainfall will cause minor flooding to occur along small streams and near low water crossing. Blabon and Sherbrooke will be affected as well. Doppler radar indicates that an estimated three to four inches of rain feel in parts of Steele County.

Law enforcement reported a funnel cloud three miles east-southeast of Cooperstown at 7:06 p.m. One was reported by the public one mile west of the Grand Forks Air Force Base at 7:28 p.m. Monday. One was reported two miles east of Gilby, ND, by an NWS spotter at 7:40 p.m. with wind gusts of up to 65 mph. Some tops of trees were snapped off by those winds.
