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

IN 2000, HIGH WINDS WERE COMMON ACROSS NORTHWEST KANSAS FOR ALMOST
3 DAYS IN A ROW. A STRONG COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE INCREASED WIND GUSTS
ON THE 17TH, FOLLOWED BY GUSTS TO NEAR 75 MPH ON THE 18TH.
CONSIDERABLE BLOWING DUST RESULTED IN NEAR ZERO VISIBILITIES IN
MANY PLACES. THE COMBINATION OF HIGH WINDS AND BLOWING DUST MADE
TRAVEL DIFFICULT, AND EVEN CLOSED DOWN A FEW HIGHWAYS ON THE
AFTERNOON OF THE 18TH. IN ADDITION, ACCIDENTS WERE REPORTED AND 2
PEOPLE WERE INJURED DURING THE EVENT.
