Several counties receive soaking
By The Telegram
Rainfall in a southerly line from Scott County to Grant County Saturday yielded several inches of moisture in some areas.
According to Marc Russell, meteorologist at the National Weather
Service in Dodge City, a storm that started in southwest Scott County
Saturday evening brought with it an inch of rain to that area.
"The storms started in southwestern Scott County and then it spread straight south down into Kearny," he said.
In Kearny County, Deerfield received 1.85 inches. Russell said that
an observer reported 1.03 inches about nine miles south of Lakin.
"The biggest rain we had was in eastern Grant County," Russell said.
Becky Norton, charge nurse at High Plains Retirement Village in
Lakin, said it rained and blew hard Saturday evening and then sprinkled
off and on. A tree was also uprooted near the assisted living portion of
the village, she said, but no damage was done.
Russell said the NWS radar Saturday indicated that the area would receive from two to three and a half inches.
"Our radar does a pretty good job of estimating. It estimated 0.90 in Lakin," Russell said.
Rain fell in Garden City Sunday evening, and as of just before 7 p.m., there was 0.03 of an inch of rain, Russell said.
On Thursday evening, Russell said there was a lot of moisture content
in the atmosphere, which created some "efficient rain producers." Scott
City got 2.2 inches, Russell said, citing data from a weather observer
That same evening, Garden City got 0.56 of an inch.
