Almost double previous records.
Grand Island and Hastings set daily snowfall records Tuesday as a major storm rolled through Nebraska.
Grand Island received 8.2 inches of snow, breaking the previous mark of 4.9 inches set in 1978. Hastings recorded 7.1 inches of snow, eclipsing the 4 inches that fell in 1944.
North Platte reported 7 inches of snow, just shy of the record of 7.2 set in 1919.
“We have unofficial reports of 12 inches of snow in Kimball,” said meteorologist Cliff Cole with the National Weather Service office in North Platte.
