Episode Narrative An upper level trough continued to dig over the western United States, accompanied by a weak disturbance and jet streak nosing into the Central Plains. A surface warm front draped across northern Kansas provided a focus for afternoon convection, aided by other surface boundaries across south central Nebraska from previous thunderstorms. North of this front, conditions were favorable for widespread thunderstorm development, with numerous reports of severe weather across south central Nebraska. Heavy rain also accompanied these storms, causing significant flooding. Many locations had over 2 inches of rain with a few locations seeing 5 to 7 inches of rainfall. These storms continued on until the early morning hours, coming to an end as the upper level energy shifted east.
Event Narrative Around two inches of rain fell on already saturated ground resulting in areas of flash flooding. Law enforcement reported water running across Highway 11 at 1612pm CST. Area newspapers reported considerable flooding across northern Howard County northward into southern Greeley County.
