Dry March

Posted: 31 Mar 2015 05:43 AM

The last day of March is at hand and it would appear to be another dry and warm day. The featured chart presents Iowa areal averaged precipitation totals for each March since 1893. Based on preliminary data, this March comes in as one of the driest on record and continues the recent trend of below average totals. Recent Aprils have made up for dry Marches and the forecast has some heavy rainfall arriving Wednesday evening.

Good = 17
Bad = 9
Abstain = 7
