Thunderstorms developed and moved to the southeast of the northern Laramie Range during the afternoon of June 3, 2014. A cold front moved south through the Nebraska Panhandle during the morning, turning surface winds to the northwest. A very unstable environment existed, supportive of strong supercell thunderstorms. As the storms moved across the high plains and intensified, they produced baseball to softball size hail from Torrington, WY east to Bayard, NE.
