Days since last half inch

Posted: 25 Jul 2013 05:40 AM

The featured chart presents an analysis of the number of days since the last half inch plus rainfall for a calendar day. The western half of of the state is shown in the 30-45 day range as rainfall events have been difficult to come by. Northwestern Iowa would appear to have a chance of breaking this streak this evening as strong storms are expected. As with our most recent storm, the rainfall is much needed but unfortunately may come with damaging wind as well.

Good = 58
Bad = 13
