December Precip Hours

Posted: 24 Dec 2015 05:40 AM

Wednesday was yet another wet December day over much of Iowa with rainfall totals approaching an inch for a swath of the state. The featured chart displays the number of hourly observations by month with measurable precipitation reported for Des Moines. The total hourly reports for December is the highest on record, according to the unofficial archive maintained by the IEM. It is also interesting to see that this month's total is higher than any other month this year! More chances for precipitating storms are in the forecast, so the total will likely be added to.

Good = 30
Bad = 15
Abstain = 13
