February was the main reason. Historically I believe they said was 6th coldest Feb. on record. This goes back to 1884 or something like that. Same time period Chicago set their all-time ever low temperature.
The amazing thing with that record not only was it coldest ever for any month, it happened after the expansion of concrete and steel.  Image you could shave at least a couple more degrees off had that same air mass arrived at the turn of the 20th century.

Yesterdays .70 puts me at 17.66 for the month of August.
One more day to add to that total.  [tup]

We were 'below normal' precip for much of August.  Then came two storms, dropping well over an inch each on the official measuring cup at the WFO that brought us 'above normal'.  That makes 16 straight months and something like 22 out of 24.

Thanks in large part to a very active June, summer 2019 (June-August) ends with the most number of combined warnings (Severe Thunderstorm, Tornado, and Flash Flood) that our office [KPAH] has ever issued during a summer season since office inception in 1995. The 240 warnings issued for our 58 county forecast area doubled the summer average for our area.

Now that meteorological summer is over, the particulars are out for southern Arizona for those that wish to peruse. For those that don't, I'll encapsulate with two words, hot, dry.
Whatta shock with this years predicted non-soon coming to fruition. :roll:

Makes my 5.7" look like a drought and that was almost double normal.

Amazing how areas really got dumped on and others didn't. But thats the nature of thunderstorms where almost all the heavy rain in this area comes from.
We were getting storms nightly for a while but may only get clipped dumping 1/4" but 5 miles away receives  3". Some of the same areas seem to get hit the hardest over and over.

This was one of our rare afternoon thunderstorms most come at night. Decided to get more of a panoramic view with camera. We ended up with .42" but some areas were dumped on.

Now that's a PWS. 8-)

Wouldn't it be nice?

Hadn't heard of it before.

One of the main staging areas was Hays, KS south of us. The study did not extend as far north in NE as you are. I suspect it is still providing data for many Doctoral candidates.  :-)

Quick sidetrack ...

Straight up 83 just north of the SD state line north of Valentine, there's a group of houses or barns, some kind of buildings laid out in neat even rows with paved roads.  What is that?  Housing for farm workers?

Your tax dollar at work. HUD or better known as tribal housing. That's an Indian casino right on the South Dakota border. The area is Lakota Sioux Rosebud Reservation. Yes, many are workers mainly at the Casino but some work in Valentine.

Mesocyclone as it approached Valentine yesterday. The airport recorded 81 mph wind.

Did you get some of the heavy rain? I would check, but our Verizon ISP is throttling my data speed so badly that I can barely connect to this site.

Not that bad here, Cocorahs (1.48"), NE (1.39"). But areas were hit much harder. Cousin 39 mi south 4.1" also Cocorahs gauge but she doesn't report. Same area 36 miles SE at Ainsworth airport 4.81". HW 20 flooded 2 places and HW 83 again flooded. All passable.

Guess we are going to have more tonight. The fun never stops.

Reached the 30" mark of precip on the year. Flooding on highways continues with areas south, SE receiving over 7"  2-day totals. This is an anomaly according to the NWS statement for September.  These same areas have exceeded 40" on the year with groundwater tables full and no place for the water to go.

Once again, September is turning out to be the hottest and driest month of the year.  Nearly every day has been in the mid 90s and not a drop of rain.  Currently 3.1°  above normal and 1.25" below normal.
