Ottumwa 2023 Precip

Posted: 22 Nov 2023 05:30 AM

Ottumwa reported a whopping 0.28 inches of precipitation on Monday, which was the first measurable precipitation for the month. The year to date total for 2023 remains near the bottom of the climatological range as shown by the featured chart. The 2023 total is currently running lower than the 1910 year-to-date total, which ended up being the driest on record for the calendar year. The situation continues to look rather dire over much of the state with limited fall precipitation and a significant soil moisture deficit that will need replenishing before the next growing season.
