It's not every day that the hometown makes national news. Ok, due to tornadoes and serial killers, it does happen. Apparently, a pilot mistook landing lights to be the rather large McConnell Air Force Base instead of a very small public runway north of Wichita. Somehow they were able to land in the itty bitty airport before finding out they were 9 miles to the north. The runway was 3,000 feet too small for a proper takeoff, so they unloaded all the cargo, put in enough fuel to make it across town, and took off. We had a cold front hit with drizzle, luckily they were able to take off, because Jabara Airport doesn't have a deicer large enough to handle the jet.

With some strong tornadoes coming from the same cold front in Nebraska and Iowa, the Kansas portion of the storm had a threat of becoming a strong squall line. Around 3:30 the dry line and cold front began initiation to the west of Wichita. Movement went very slowly, by 5:00 I was out NE of Wichita and waiting until about 6:30 before it moved in. The storm pulled quite a lot of rain cooled air into the inflow and somewhat limited the squall lines development. It did go briefly severe, with some smaller hail threat. These dynamics gave rise to a couple discrete supercells that dumped rain and caused an impressive amount of lightning in the Wichita area.
