* Effective Aug. 1, 2011, the new set of 30-year climate averages, or "normals", from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) for 1981-2010 superseded the previous 30-year set of 1971-2000 normals on all NWS climate-related products.


 FEBRUARY 2012 CLIMATE REVIEW FOR SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA 
AND PORTIONS OF NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS

...Well-Above Normal Precipitation In Most Areas...And Near-Normal To Slightly Above Normal Temperatures...

The following narrative focuses on climate and weather highlights for the month of February 2012 across the NWS Hastings coverage area, encompassing 24 counties in south central and central Nebraska, and 6 counties in north central Kansas. Click HERE for a map of this coverage area. The temperature and precipitation data presented here are largely based on the NWS Cooperative Observer network, along with data from a handful of automated airport sites. Climate averages and "normals" for February 2012 presented here are based on the official 1981-2010 normals.

TEMPERATURES
......(According to 30-year averages, "normal" February high temperatures gradually climb from 37-44 degrees across northern portions of the area generally north of Interstate 80, and from 38-49 degrees across southern portions of the area, including North Central Kansas. Low temperatures typically make a gradual climb from 13-23 degrees across the northern half of the area, and from 16-25 degrees in southern counties...) 

For the FIFTH month in a row, and in some areas for the eighth time in the last nine months, temperatures averaged at least slightly above normal across most of South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas.  However, temperatures were not as far above normal as they were in January, with most of South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas averaging no more than 2 degrees above normal in February.

Breaking down the month into temperature trends, there were really no long stretches of extreme cold or warmth. However, there were two distinct temperature regimes. For much of the area, especially those areas that received significant snowfall early in the month, temperatures averaged below normal on 10 consecutive days from the 4th-13th. However, this trend reversed during the latter half of the month, with most days averaging above normal. For most of the NWS Hastings coverage area, the two warmest days of the month were the 1st and the 28th, with widespread highs in the 60s. On the cold side of things, the 11th-12th were easily the coldest two days of the month in most areas, with high temperatures on the 11th struggling to between 11-18 degrees across much of South Central Nebraska, and only into the low 20s in most of North Central Kansas.  Low temperatures on the mornings of the 11th and 12th were also the coldest of the month, with much of South Central Nebraska dropping between -5 and -10.

In the Nebraska Tri-Cities, Grand Island recorded the warmest reading of the month with 61 degrees on the 1st, while both Kearney and Hastings tied for the coldest temperature of the month with a low of -8 on the 11th. Based on various NWS Cooperative Observer reports and automated airport observations, one of the warmest readings of the month was 69 degrees near both Alton and Plainville KS on the 28th. One of the coldest readings was -10 degrees at Minden and Genoa on the morning of the 11th or 12th. 

Focusing on the meteorological winter season of December-February as a whole, above normal temperatures were quite prevalent, and highlighted by the well-above normal readings in January. At Grand Island and Hastings, the winter season finished as the 13th and 16th-warmest winters on record, respectively, and the warmest since 2006. In both cities, the low temperature dropped below zero only THREE times. Along these same lines, most of South Central Nebraska recorded no more than five days during the winter with high temperatures failing to reach 20 degrees. Based on 30-year normals, this was only about half as many sub-20 degree days as typically expected.

PRECIPITATION/SNOWFALL...(According to 30-year averages, "normal" February precipitation (rainfall and snow liquid equivalent) across most of the 30-county area ranges somewhere between 0.50-inch and 0.75-inch, with the highest amounts favoring eastern areas closest to the Highway 81 corridor such as York, Hebron and Beloit. Normal February snowfall ranges from 5-6 inches across most of South Central Nebraska, and 3-4 inches in North Central Kansas.) 

Based on reports from around 70 NWS Cooperative Observers, along with a handful of automated airport sites, the vast majority of the 30-county area measured above normal to well-above normal precipitation during February 2012. In fact, roughly 80% of the area measured at least 1 inch of precipitation during the month, and roughly 10% of the area measured at least 2 inches. Put another way, the majority of the NWS Hastings coverage area saw precipitation totals between 150 and 300% of normal. As for snowfall, most of South Central Nebraska measured above normal totals in the 7-15 range, except for lower amounts in the 2-5 inch range focused mainly across some of the far southern and western counties. Across the six counties in North Central Kansas, snowfall varied considerably, ranging from less than 1 inch across much of Mitchell County, up to 9 inches near Long Island in far northwest Phillips County. However, most of North Central Kansas tallied between 2-5 inches for the month, which was near-normal.

The majority of precipitation during February 2012 fell very early on, during a significant winter storm that affected the area on the 3rd-4th. This storm, which featured both rainfall and snowfall in most places, resulted in unseasonably high liquid precipitation totals of 1-2 inches across much of the area. For a good chunk of South Central Nebraska, most of this precipitation fell in the form of heavy, wet snow, with the highest amounts of 7-15 inches focused roughly 25 miles either side of a line extending from near Holdrege-Doniphan-Benedict Nebraska.  Attesting to the significance of this storm system, Hastings set an all-time record for 2-day February precipitation, totaling 1.58 inches (please refer to the web story link at the top of the page for more details on this winter storm).  Although this storm provided a much-needed influx of moisture to the area, the latter 3.5 weeks of the month returned to a rather dry weather pattern, featuring only a few light precipitation events.

Per NWS Cooperative Observers, some of the highest monthly precipitation totals occurred near Dannebrog (2.62 inches), at Bruning (2.60) and at Bradshaw (2.59). In the Nebraska Tri-Cities, the month ranked between the 12th and 29th-wettest February on record. The limited portions of the 30-county areas that tallied less than 1 inch of precipitation for the month included western portions of Dawson County such as Cozad, which missed out on the heaviest snow bands from the Feb. 3-4 winter storm.

Snowfall-wise, a few of the highest monthly totals included 15.5 inches in Bradshaw, and 13.4 inches near York. On the opposite end of the spectrum were places such as Beloit and Cawker City KS, with only 0.5-inch.

In addition, the link on the far upper right of this page contains an archive of monthly precipitation amounts for around 70 locations.)


DROUGHT STATUS
...Compared to the issuance on Feb. 7, 2012, the U.S. Drought Monitor as of March 6, 2012 (images at bottom of page) reflected very little change in official drought categories within the 30-county area. Although only limited precipitation fell during the latter stages of the month in the wake of the significant winter storm on the 3rd-4th, the overall well-above-normal February precipitation helped keep the majority of the 30-county area free from ANY abnormally dry or drought categories. That being said, a limited area of Category D0 (abnormally dry) conditions remained in place across eastern portions of South Central Nebraska, mainly affecting portions of Polk, Hamilton, York, Clay, Fillmore, Nuckolls and Thayer Counties. In addition, a slight northward shift to abnormally dry Category D0 conditions was noted in central Kansas, with this D0 area just starting to brush up against the far southern portions of Rooks, Osborne and Mitchell Counties. 

(Please refer to the Drought Monitor graphics toward the bottom of the page for further details)


SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS/HIGH WINDS...Although there was only one day of severe thunderstorm activity during the month (on the 28th), these storms spawned two brief tornadoes...the first-ever February tornadoes documented within the NWS Hastings coverage area (see story link at top of page for details). In addition to the severe storms on the 28th, widespread strong winds occurred on the 23rd, 28th, and 29th in association with passing cold fronts or strong low pressure systems. One of the strongest measured wind gusts of the month was 63 MPH at the Phillipsburg KS airport on the evening of the 28th, as a surging cold front teamed with passing light rain showers to produce strong winds.

- Number of Severe Thunderstorm Warning polygons issued by NWS Hastings in February 2012: 4  (4 more than last year)
- Number of Tornado Warning polygons issued by NWS Hastings in February 2012:  2   (2 more than last year)

NWS Hastings Area: Feb. 2012 Total "Observed" Precipitation 
Based On AHPS Precipitation Analysis Including Radar Data

<--- While the precipitation images above are based strictly on gauge-measured data, this image on the left utilizes an "Observed" multisensor approach created by River Forecast Centers. Hourly precipitation estimates from WSR-88D NEXRAD radar are compared to ground rainfall gauge reports, and a bias (correction factor) is calculated and applied to the radar field.
