Worse than 2012 for some

Posted: 07 Aug 2013 05:37 AM

Outside of the very wet summer for northeastern Iowa, rainfall has been hit or miss for the rest of the state as shown by the featured map of the difference between the 1 June through 6 August precipitation total for 2013 vs 2012. Having the wettest spring on record for Iowa is currently helping the agricultural crops limp through this dry period of summer. There are more chances of rain in the forecast, but the heaviest totals look to be south of Iowa.

Good = 95
Bad = 17
