...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS/HIGH WINDS

ALTHOUGH THE CITY OF KEARNEY MISSED OUT ON SEVERE WEATHER DURING
JULY...IT WAS A RATHER CLOSE CALL AS A SIGNIFICANT SEVERE STORM WITH
DAMAGING WINDS AND LARGE HAIL PASSED FROM NORTHWEST-TO-SOUTHEAST
THROUGH AREAS ONLY A FEW MILES EAST OF KEARNEY ON THE EVENING OF THE
9TH...CAUSING SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE IN THE GIBBON AREA. ALSO DURING THE
EVENING OF THE 9TH...THE AIRPORT MEASURED A 55 MPH THUNDERSTORM WIND
GUST AT 655 PM CDT...WHICH WAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST MEASURED GUSTS
DURING JULY (BUT NOT NECESSARILY THE TRUE PEAK GUST...AS THIS
AUTOMATED SYSTEM ONLY TRANSMITS ROUTINE OBSERVATIONS EVERY 20
MINUTES). NO TORNADOES WERE CONFIRMED WITHIN BUFFALO COUNTY DURING
JULY.
