). Understanding physical factors impacting hail occurrences is important to improve hail prediction and mitigate its impact. Urbanization could impact storm properties through the following two major pathways. The first major pathway is through changes in land surface conditions. For urban land, the most typical and extensively studied effect is the increase of surface temperature compared to the surrounding rural area, known as the urban heat island (UHI) effect (e.g., Bornstein and Lin 2000 ; Shepherd et

Data and methodology This study focuses on the structure and evolution of a bore near Grand Island in central Nebraska around dawn on 20 June 2015 during the Plains Elevated Convection at Night (PECAN) field campaign ( Geerts et al. 2017 ). The 20 June bore was sampled primarily by University of
