Few Dry Forecasts

Posted: 02 Dec 2019 10:08 PM

The recent Weather Prediction Center seven day precipitation forecasts have painted a dry picture for Iowa, which has been somewhat rare recently. The featured map presents the percentage of these forecasts since 15 September that have had less than 0.05 inches of precipitation forecast out the next seven days. The hardest hit area of northeastern Iowa this fall nicely shows up in this analysis with less than 10% of said forecasts being that dry. The persistent wet conditions this fall has made harvest a challenge.

Good = 15
Bad = 0
