The above feature photo is a screen grab take whilst watching Reed Timmer’s video relating to the Tornado.
FYI: A day before, the Pilger, Nebraska twin Tornadoes struck.
The warm front which was accountable for the substantial Tornadoes on the afternoon of the 16th June, this lifted just slightly north on the 17th June into far northeast Nebraska.
Significant instability developed along this boundary given the very warm and humid airmass in place across the region. Terminology heavy to say the least this part!
By the time late afternoon came, an isolated supercell thunderstorm developed across this boundary which lead to it becoming severe quite quickly.
This supercell thunderstorm spawned a handful of Tornadoes, three of which were significant. A fun fact for you!
These storms were unique in that they were nearly stationary for a couple of hours, resulting in short and twisting paths despite long Tornado lifecycles.
We didn’t particularly want to make this a wordy article, however we wanted to give these Tornadoes a detailed introduction. Now you’ve read about it…
…In the videos below, relive the Coleridge, Nebraska Tornadoes that struck on the 17th June 2014.
