Heavy Rainfall Across Eastern Nebraska, June 14-15, 2012

Radar Estimated Precipitation for June 14, 2012

Heavy rain fell across eastern Nebraska on the evening of June 14, 2012 due to a stalled cold front in our area.  Temperatures during the day reached the mid 90's with dew point temperatures in the mid 60's.  At 3:54 pm CDST the temperature was 94F with a dew point temperature of 66F.  Thunderstorms formed over the area and continued to move across the area until 5 am CDST.

Although they can be similar,  radar estimated precipitation is not as accurate as actual measurements using rain gauges.  The following map shows the actual precipitation measurements for this storm event.
