Episode Narrative Thunderstorms developed along a stationary boundary near the Kansas and Nebraska border on the afternoon of May 27th. Due to high amounts of instability and shear in the atmosphere these thunderstorms quickly became severe. The thunderstorms moved east over southern Nebraska, moving into southeast Nebraska by early evening. Although other isolated severe weather was reported, one particular storm moving through Jefferson and Gage Counties produced the majority of the severe weather. The storm complex exited southeast Nebraska prior to midnight producing severe weather around the Falls City Nebraska area.
Event Narrative A tornado developed near 6 miles east of Fairbury and traveled just over 3 miles in an east northeast direction ending just over 2 miles south southeast of Harbine. The tornado damage was generally minor including overturned center pivot irrigation systems, tree damage, and farm outbuildings.
