Summer of Flooding

Posted: 01 Oct 2018 05:34 AM

Heavy rainfall and flooding have been quite common over much of Iowa this summer season. As an illustration, the featured map depicts the percentage of time between 1 May and 30 September that the given NWS Forecast Office had at least one Flood Warning (VTEC: FL.W) active. For four out of the five forecast offices serving Iowa, the percentages shown are above 50% over the past five months. Sadly, the very wet and flooding conditions look to continue for at least the first week of October and perhaps longer.

Good = 14
Bad = 0
