Almost Back to Average

Posted: 12 Sep 2018 05:12 AM

The very wet weather of late August and early September have taken a bite out of the drought conditions over far southern Iowa. The featured chart depicts year to date accumulated precipitation for Centerville (far southern Iowa) with the envelope of observed values shaded in brown and this year's value in red shown in comparison to long term average along with the most extreme years. The deficit this year was almost erased by the recent rains. The weather has turned drier and warmer this week, so it will take more rainfall later this fall season to erase.

Good = 11
Bad = 0
