...A Quick Glance at Precipitation Totals Across the NWS Hastings
Area This "Meteorological Winter" (Dec 1-Feb 14)...

The table below highlights precipitation totals and departures
from normal/percent of normal for meteorological winter thus far,
covering Dec. 1 - Feb. 14. This table features data for 25
locations scattered throughout the local area, most of which are
official NWS Cooperative Observers, along with a few primary
airport sites.

As evident from the table, this winter-so-far has featured a fair
amount of variability in precipitation across the local 30-county
area, but as a whole, roughly two-thirds of the area has been
below normal. The farthest-below-normal locations have
concentrated within southern and southeastern counties, especially
north central Kansas, along with south central Nebraska areas
near the state line and also extending north up Highway 81 into
Fillmore and York counties. In contrast, several Nebraska counties
mainly along/north of Interstate 80 have received at least
slightly above-normal precipitation, largely due to the
significant snow storm/blizzard of Jan. 21-22.
