Days till Totaling Two Inches

Posted: 05 Aug 2019 05:35 AM

The recent dryness is starting to have a negative impact with analyses like the US Drought Monitoring showing portions of the state really needing rainfall. The featured map depicts the number of days you have to travel back in time before accumulating two inches of rainfall based on NOAA MRMS estimates. The light green and tan areas are in the 30 to 50 day range, well over a month's worth of time. There is rain and thunderstorms in the forecast for today, but limited chances after that. The rainfalls today will likely be of the 'million dollar' rain variety, which greatly help the farmers whose fields receive them.

Good = 17
Bad = 0
