| September was a cool and dry month for central and south central Nebraska and north central Kansas. Sites at Beaver City...Superior and Beloit experienced the greatest average temperature deficit hovering around 4 degrees below normal for the month. Superior's average monthly temperature tied with the September 1975's 8th place record coldest...based on records dating back to 1902...Beloit finished the month as the 11th coldest September of record since 1893...and Beaver City experienced it's 12th coldest September based on data dating back to 1893. The fall freeze also paid an early visit to a few sites...arriving anywhere from a couple days behind the average freeze date (Greeley)...to 11 days ahead of schedule at York.
Overall...most locations finished below normal in the monthly precipitation category...with York and Grand Island exhibiting the largest precipitation shortfall during the month. York's monthly rainfall matched September 1897's 9th driest September when comparing September records extending back to 1894. September is usually our first month of the new snow season with measurable snow. This was not the case this year as none of our sites reported snow.
