...MARCH 2011 CLIMATE REVIEW FOR SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND PORTIONS OF NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS...

LISTED BELOW ARE A NUMBER OF CLIMATE AND WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE
MONTH OF MARCH 2011...WITH SPECIFIC CLIMATE DATA FOCUSING PRIMARILY
ON THE SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA TRI-CITIES OF GRAND ISLAND...HASTINGS
AND KEARNEY.

TEMPERATURES...WHEN COMPARED TO OFFICIAL 30-YEAR AVERAGES FROM
1971-2000...MARCH RANGED FROM NEAR NORMAL TO 1-2 DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS.
HOWEVER...THE MONTH WAS NOT WITHOUT TYPICAL EARLY SPRING CONTRASTS.
FOR AWHILE...IT LOOKED AS THOUGH THE MONTH WOULD END UP AVERAGING
ABOVE NORMAL...THANKS TO A VERY MILD STREAK CENTERED FROM THE
15TH TO THE 22ND. HOWEVER...THE LAST WEEK OF THE MONTH FEATURED A
NOTABLE COLD SNAP...WITH A 5-DAY STRETCH OF HIGHS ONLY IN THE 30S
ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA. FOR SEVERAL LOCATIONS...AVERAGE HIGH
TEMPERATURES DURING THE MARCH 25TH-29TH PERIOD RANKED AMONG THE
TOP-5 COLDEST ON RECORD. FOR MOST OF SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND
NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS...THE LAST TIME THERE WAS A MORE INTENSE
LATE-MARCH COLD SNAP WAS 24 YEARS AGO IN 1987. IN THE NEBRASKA TRI
CITIES...THE WARMEST READING OF THE MONTH IN GRAND
ISLAND...HASTINGS AND KEARNEY WAS 73 DEGREES...WHILE KEARNEY
RECORDED THE COLDEST READING WITH A LOW OF 6 ON THE 5TH.

PRECIPITATION...UNFORTUNATELY...MARCH REGISTERED WELL BELOW NORMAL
ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION
...CONTINUING AN OVERALL TREND FROM THE
PAST SEVERAL MONTHS. MOST OF SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH
CENTRAL KANSAS RECEIVED ONLY 25-60 PERCENT OF TYPICAL MARCH
PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS...ESPECIALLY SOUTH OF INTERSTATE
80...INCLUDING ONLY 24 PERCENT OF NORMAL AT HASTINGS WITH 0.49 INCH.
BASED ON 30-YEAR AVERAGES...MOST OF THE NWS HASTINGS COUNTY WARNING
AREA SHOULD RECEIVE BETWEEN 1.75 AND 2.25 INCHES. LOCATIONS NORTH OF
INTERSTATE 80 FARED A BIT BETTER THANKS TO MORE SNOWFALL...WITH
PLACES SUCH AS ORD AND GREELEY PICKING UP CLOSER TO 70-80 PERCENT OF
NORMAL MARCH PRECIPITATION.  DUE TO THE CUMULATIVE EFFECT OF SEVERAL
DRY MONTHS...THE U.S. DROUGHT MONITOR INDICATES THAT MOST LOCATIONS
ALONG AND SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 80...INCLUDING NORTH CENTRAL
KANSAS...ARE NOW IN CATEGORY D1 MODERATE DROUGHT...WITH ABNORMALLY
DRY CONDITIONS PREVAILING NORTH OF I-80.

DESPITE A PRONOUNCED LACK OF MARCH RAINFALL...THE MONTH FEATURED A
FEW MODEST SNOW EVENTS. THE FIRST EVENT BETWEEN THE 7TH-9TH BROUGHT
4-6 INCHES OF SNOW TO LOCATIONS GENERALLY NORTHWEST OF A LINE FROM
GREELEY TO KEARNEY TO BEAVER CITY NEBRASKA...WITH MUCH LIGHTER
AMOUNTS TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE SECOND SNOW EVENT OF THE MONTH
OCCURRED FROM THE 24TH-26TH IN A FEW SEPARATE ROUNDS...AND FEATURED
GENERALLY 3-6 INCHES OF SLUSHY ACCUMULATIONS TARGETING LOCATIONS
NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80...WITH LITTLE TO NO SNOW SOUTH OF I-80. A
FINAL ROUND OF SNOWFALL AGAIN AFFECTED LOCATIONS MAINLY ALONG AND
NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80 ON THE 28TH WITH AMOUNTS TYPICALLY 2 TO 5
INCHES.

SEVERE WEATHER...MARCH 22ND WAS THE ONLY DAY FEATURING ISOLATED
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS...WHICH BROUGHT HAIL MAINLY TO PARTS OF NORTH
CENTRAL KANSAS. QUARTER TO PING PONG BALL SIZE HAIL WAS REPORTED IN
THE BELOIT AND TIPTON AREAS.
