May 11, 2019 was a pleasant day, after several days of below normal temperatures, almost constant cloud cover and light rain, a seasonable day was much needed.
The day also ending like a typical May one, with thunderstorms in the afternoon. A minor cold front passing through the area caused a squall line in the eastern part of the state. Closer to home a few non-severe thunderstorms initiated in the Buffalo and Hall County areas as the sun was setting.
While these storms were not organized, they did contain a fair amount of rain, traffic on I-80 slowed to a crawl while the downdraft impacted the road east of Kearney.
In all the storms were nothing special but they provided an stunning view as the sunset turned the clouds different shades of pink and purple.
