This morning's NEXRAD composite looks like what we would expect for summertime in Iowa. A majority of Iowa's rainfall comes during the night time hours from mesoscale convective systems like the one shown. A lack of these systems is part of the reason for our rainfall deficits that have accumulated this year.

Good = 23
Bad = 11
