|Gathering together outside the
Hastings, NE NWS office with several copies of the
latest NWS weather maps, the students then discussed where the target intercept
area should be and how to get there.
|We positioned ourselves in Arapahoe,
Nebraska, just east of Mc Cook, NE and
south of Lexington, NE. The warm front was about 25 miles to the north and
the dry line had just pushed through Mc Cook. Convective initiation had begun
