Kindersley airport stood out on Thursday June 27th and not just because of the rainfall. A rare highly localized gust was caught by airport sensors. Environment and Climate Change Canada said Friday that the Kindersley Airport received a gust of wind that was 96 km/h. This was so localized that the doppler radar couldn't detect it until after it occurred.

Speaking with Terri Lang from Environment and Climate Change Canada they are still unsure what caused the anomaly and are calling it "a downward momentum transfer". It was so localized no other area came remotely close to that.

On Thursday evening, Kindersley Airport got a brief gust of wind that reached 96 km/h. It was so localized that, even with our Doppler RADAR, it was not detectable until after it occurred! #skstorm

Originally they thought it may be a sting jet, Which Terri says " would make sense with the type of weather system we had" But there was no evidence of that occurring in this case. The cause has meteorologist scratching their heads a bit figuring out how it produced.

Sting JetA sting jet is a small area of intense wind caused by a jet of fast moving cold air that descends, accelerating and hits the ground impacting a isolated area.
