Rainfall Totals For Central South Dakota

June 22, 2011, 6:14 PM by Brian Karstens

Rainfall Totals For Central South Dakota
The weather is finally starting to improve in central South Dakota after days of heavy rain.

The heaviest widespread rainfall in recent memory has left many in central KELOLAND hoping for drier days ahead.

A viewer added some instant coffee grounds to this bucket to show us the grand total of water from this storm: nearly seven inches of water. Many locations are reporting three-day totals over three inches.

10 miles south of Kimball, there was 10.5" reported and Ft. Thompson had around 8". Those were some of the biggest numbers. Burke had 6" and near McLaughlin they had 5.3". Another total from Pierre shows 4.7" along with Gettysburg at 4.7". Reliance had 4.5" with much heavier totals just north of town; White Lake had 4.3". Finishing out the top 10 totals was White River at 3.9" and Highmore at 3.76".

To put these numbers inter perspective, most locations in central South Dakota normally receive 8" of rain over the months of June, July and August combined. Pierre could go two months without rain and still be on track for normal precipitation this year.

While a typical summer will feature heavy rain like these totals in isolated places, it's unusual to have this much rain so widespread in central KELOLAND.
