Worse than last year

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 05:41 AM

The heavy rains of April have improved the drought situation in the state considerably, but the featured chart shows that Iowa is still slightly worse off than last year at this time and in the worst condition since 2003! The precipitation deficit accumulated from last year will not be made up for in a month, but will take more wet months to come. The immediate term forecast looks warm and dry, which will help the crop planting progress in the state.

Good = 143
Bad = 20
