Omaha - Extreme Daily Precipitation for Each Year





This page lists the biggest rainstorms or snowstorms of the year in Omaha, Nebraska along with the date they occurred. The information answers questions like: When was the last time more than six inches of precipitation landed on Omaha in a single day? What was the rainiest day of 2018?

The list gives the highest daily precipitation for each year in Omaha and the date that it happened. A date with a plus sign beside it means the same amount of moisture also fell on at least one other day earlier that year.

These records were observed at Eppley Airfield and go back to 1948. During that time the heaviest downpour measured for a single day was 6.46 inches (164.1 millimetres) on August 7, 1999.
