More Locally Heavy Rainfall, September 22

A strong, nearly stationary upper level low pressure system resulted in an unseasonably cool and rainy day across much of south central Nebraska and north central Kansas on Tuesday, September 22. Although most areas across the region picked up at least a little rain, a fairly narrow, roughly 20-30 mile wide corridor of south central Nebraska was soaked with amounts between 1.50 to over 2.00 inches.

In general, this band of heavier rainfall extended several miles either side of a line from near Dannebrog and Ravenna, southwest through the Elm Creek, Holdrege and Oxford areas.

  • Summarized in the tables and graphics below are reported 24-hour rainfall amounts generally between 7:00 AM September 22 and 7:00 AM September 23.
  • Even though these are 24-hour totals, the large majority of this precipitation fell during the afternoon and evening on the 22nd.  These reports are from a variety of sources, including manual observations taken by NWS Cooperative Observers and Nebraska Rainfall Assessment and Information Network (NeRAIN) observers, and automated ASOS and AWOS equipment at area airports.
