Wettest Spring

Posted: 30 May 2013 05:41 AM

The meteorological spring season includes the months of March, April, and May. All of the rain and snow these past three months have contributed to the what appears to be the wettest spring on record for Iowa as shown by the featured graph. The numbers shown are IEM estimates and differ from the official values from the State Climatologist due do differences in the areal averaging technique. Regardless, the preliminary estimates from the State Climatologist have this year as the wettest on record as well. We still have two days of May left and there are more chances of rain and severe weather.

Good = 65
Bad = 13
