Episode Narrative Tornadoes in Kansas in November are quite unusual. In fact, in the last 20 years, there have been only two November tornado days in the entire state. Thus, the twelve tornadoes reported during this late November severe weather episode would certainly fit the category of a rare event.
Event Narrative Tornado touched down at 3:21 PM 4 miles ESE of Junction City and moved north for about 2 miles before dissipating. The tornado moved across Interstate 70 near exit 307 and produced F0 damage to a hay barn, and also destroyed an indoor horse riding barn. Pieces of the barn landed a half mile away. Sufficient warning was given to allow authorities to close Interstate 70 for a short time until the tornado passed. The parent thunderstorm was a mini-supercell.
