A Preliminary Study of the 16 June 2014 Tornadoes in Northeast Nebraska
This presentation will serve to document various observational components of the event. A thorough analysis of the WSR-88D data will show storm-scale features of the mesocyclones and parent supercell, which will be paired with several videos and photographs. A mesoscale environmental analysis will show that extreme instability and shear were present, and that the convection was focused along an outflow boundary that was moving with the supercell.
Finally, a detailed damage survey was conducted from the ground and air, and was supplemented by high-resolution satellite data. The damage survey will be correlated with the radar analysis for a complete depiction of the tornado tracks and characteristics.
