half of the PECAN domain up to 3 km MSL, and especially below 1.5 km AGL. This eastern region corresponds to the lowest surface elevations, as the Great Plains terrain slopes downward toward the Mississippi River. In contrast, the higher-elevation far west was very dry, influenced by the dry side of a weak trough present near the Kansas–Colorado border (not shown). Lidar cross sections in Tollerud et al. (2008) also showed a deeper layer of moisture in the east, associated with a deeper boundary

tidal bores. One of the earliest records of a tidal bore occurred in water and dates back to the eleventh century on the Qiantang River in China. Tidal bores commonly form on this river when a cooler incoming ocean tide undercuts warmer river water at the river’s estuary. The inability of the warmer freshwater to completely override the cooler and salty upstream-surging ocean water results in a bore that moves upstream, at times reaching several meters of height. 1 Similar tidal bores have been

storm type, (c) single-cell storm type, (d) AB CI mode, (e) CS CI mode, and (f) NB CI mode. 1) Hail Since hail events account for 84% of all severe events, this analysis reflects that of the severe events as a whole. The peak initiation time is relatively early at night and the peak initiation month is May ( Fig. 12 ). The primary initiation location is from western Kansas to south-central Nebraska and a secondary initiation location spans a region from just south of the Red River to southwestern
