It was a bit unexpected, but the first tornado warning in Minnesota of 2019 was issued Friday night. 

The warning was issued for southern Mahnomen County and northern Becker County at 7:25 p.m., with a supercell producing a radar-indicated tornado. The storm was also believed to be capable of producing hail the size of half dollar coins. 

It's unclear if a tornado ever touched down, nor is it clear yet if the storm produced any damage. But it did, at the every least, produce a significant funnel near Mahnomen

Here's what it looked like on radar around 7:35 p.m.
