The entire Tri-State region received some much needed precipitation Wednesday night as a cool front moved through the area. The storm system sparked numerous severe weather warnings throughout the afternoon and evening. Minor damage has been reported.

Rainfall totals were heaviest near the Kansas/Nebraska line in Rawlins and Cheyenne Counties and in areas of southeast Thomas, eastern Logan, western Sheridan and northern Gove Counties. Some unofficial reports at Rocking M Radio stations:

  • .50 – Quinter
  • .62 – just south of Sharon Springs
  • 2.25 – 7 miles north of Oakley
  • 1.80 – Angelus
  • 1.70 – Atwood
  • 3.00 – northwest Rawlins County

The moisture was not limited to just the Tri-State region. Nearly all of the Plains states received significant rainfall, with some areas showing upwards of 6-inches of precipitation. The heaviest hit in Kansas included Saline and Rice Counties in the central portion of the state.

The forecast calls for milder temperatures through the weekend with a chance of storms returning Monday.
