Heat Burst in Nebraska

Since I just returned from a quick trip to Nebraska, it's worth posting this story about a recent heat burst in Cozad. Nebraska gets some of the strangest weather in the country.

From Wikipedia on heat bursts:

"A heat burst is a rare atmospheric phenomenon characterised by gusty winds and a rapid increase in temperature and decrease in dew point."

The phenomenon is not fully understood, apparently.
