Monthly Hours of Precip

Posted: 19 Sep 2014 05:43 AM

The automated airport weather stations provide hourly reports of precipitation. The featured chart shows the number of hours that measurable precipitation was reported for this year and on average for Ames. This chart does not show the time duration of precipitation as an hourly report of precipitation does not mean it precipitated for the entire hour period. Anyway, this year has seen most of its months above long term average with August at about double of average. The forecast is mostly dry with some chances of rain today and Saturday.

Good = 26
Bad = 18
Abstain = 21
