Episode Narrative A compact upper low pressure system tracked across eastern Nebraska and western Iowa early in the afternoon on 3/31/07. Just ahead of this system, from extreme eastern Nebraska into western Iowa, partial sunshine allowed temperatures to climb to around 70 degrees with dewpoints in the 50s, while a bit farther to the west in the Columbus and Norfolk areas, readings were in the 40s. The contrast in temperatures and dynamics from the upper low helped kick off severe thunderstorms across the area, including at least one short-lived tornado west of Herman, Nebraska.
Event Narrative A tornado touched down 3 miles west of Herman around 235 pm CDT and tracked about 1 mile before lifting according to a NWS storm survey. The tornado's path was around 1/4 mile wide as it damaged some sheds and almost destroyed a horse barn. The tornado also snapped a few trees in the area and did some fence damage.
