June Precip Variability

Posted: 01 Jul 2016 05:37 AM

The featured map displays NOAA MRMS Q3 precipitation estimates for June 2016 for the Ames and Des Moines area. The locals here in Ames have lamented missing out on rainfall events and a storm again on Thursday only brushed the northeastern side of town. Totals for the month are much higher just south and especially southeast of town. But totals are even lower to the northwest over toward Boone. Thus there is plenty of variability over the area with how the crops are doing.

Good = 10
Bad = 0
