What Is A Heat Burst?

September 4, 2014, 10:26 PM by Grant Smith

What Is A Heat Burst?

While Thursday's afternoon highs may only reached the 70s, surface observation stations in some areas of KELOLAND recorded a rare spike in temperature known as a Heat Burst.

A Heat Burst is when a thunderstorm is starting to die out or instead of more air rising to feed the storm, there is more air falling, essentially killing the storm. If the conditions are just right, the air falling through the storm will warm as it falls and become increasingly drier. Resulting in very warm and dry air rushing to the surface, and once it hits the surface that rushing air is called a Heat Burst. Some areas across the world have seen have seen spikes of temperatures to over 100 degrees in the middle of the night

But here in KELOLAND, Huron spiked to over 90 degrees at 4 a.m. Some areas around Huron had spikes into the 80s as the heat wave spread out.

As far as the rest of the work week goes, a passing cold front will leave most of KELOLAND with highs only in the 60s on Friday.
