Corrected Kearney precipitation total

... Wettest April on record for a few official precipitation
stations in the NWS Hastings coverage area including Kearney and
Holdrege...

Thanks to an incredibly wet latter half of the month... many
official precipitation stations within the local area recorded one
of their top-10 or even top-5 wettest months of April on record.
However... at least a few places mainly west of the Highway 281
corridor actually measured their outright-wettest April on record!

Following below are details for those record-breaking stations
with at least 100-year periods of record.

-----------------------------------------------------

- Holdrege NE (airport/NWS coop observer... records date back 122
years to 1895):
new April record of 9.45 inches at the Airport (coop observer in
town had even more... this total will be reported Monday or
tuesday)... surpassed the previous record of 8.53 inches in 2007.

- Kearney NE airport* (NWS coop observer... records date back 122
years to 1895):
new April record of 8.39 inches... surpassed the previous record
of 7.59 inches in 1944.

(* Please note! The automated precipitation gauge at Kearney
Airport greatly under-measured rainfall during April due to an
equipment glitch that is being looked into. As always... the coop
observer total is the official Kearney data.)

- Miller NE (NWS coop observer... records date back 110 years to
1907):
new April record of 7.89 inches... surpassed the previous record
of 7.11 inches in 1920.

- 4 miles WNW of Plainville KS (NWS coop observer... complete
records include 107 of 124 years dating back to 1893):
new April record of 7.39 inches... surpassed the previous record
of 5.39 inches in 1919.

- Smith Center KS (NWS coop observer... records date back 107 years
to 1910):
new April record of 5.40 inches... surpassed the previous record
of 5.06 inches in 1944.
