Sioux City Struggles

Posted: 10 Aug 2022 05:30 AM

Precipitation has been a struggle this summer over much of Iowa. For parts of NW Iowa, the struggle has been real for the entire calendar year as shown by the featured chart of year to date accumulated precipitation. The red line is this year's accumulation and is shown at the bottom of the range of values for the date. Rewording, the year to date accumulation this year is the lowest on record for the site at just over nine inches. The wettest and driest full year is plotted as well along with the present NCEI climatology. It is too bad that all that rain that fell just north over Sioux Falls on Sunday could not have been shared a bit further south.

Good = 15
Bad = 0
