...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

IN 1952, A THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPED 15 MILES NORTHWEST OF GOODLAND,
KANSAS, IN THE EARLY EVENING. THIS WAS THE FIRST STORM TO BE DETECTED
BY A RADAR OVER THE TRI STATE AREA. THE RADAR IN USE AT THE TIME WAS
CALLED A W S R 1, AND HAD BEEN USED BY THE NAVY DURING WORLD WAR TWO.

IN 2002, A HEAT WAVE GRIPPED THE AREA AS TEMPERATURES WERE SENT
WELL INTO THE LOW AND MID 90S. EVERY OFFICIAL WEATHER STATION IN
THE AREA BROKE A RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE, INCLUDING 97 DEGREES
AT MCCOOK NEBRASKA.
