When a thunderstorm dropped slightly more than an inch of rain in late July in North Platte, it ended an incredible streak of days without at least 1 inch of rain, according to the National Weather Service.
Until July 24, when 1.02 inches of rain fell, North Platte hadn't had at least 1 inch of rain for more than a year — 453 days — with the previous inch-plus rain on April 27, 2012.
