Mostly Dry 31 Days

Posted: 16 Nov 2016 05:34 AM

The featured map displays MRMS estimated precipitation totals for the past 31 days. Most of the western half of the state is analyzed to have received less than one inch of rain and there are a flew blotches in west-central Iowa near zero! With the growing season well over, the dry and warm weather has certainly been welcome to help with the fall harvest progress. The US Drought Monitor only has a small concern of abnormally dry conditions over southeastern Iowa. This dry fall weather followed a very wet end of summer, so impacts are nill thus far.

Good = 12
