Past IEM Features tagged: jun20
It is not too late to look back on the significant contrast in precipitation during June over Iowa. The featured map presents IEM / unofficial climate district averaged precipitation ranks for the month against all previous Junes back to 1893. Northeastern Iowa ended up with a top 10 wettest June while southwestern Iowa was top 30 driest. This pattern has persisted into July with much of the rain that fell yesterday being isolated to the northeastern corner of the state. While chances of rain are in the forecast, much of the driest portion of the state looks to mostly miss out on significant totals.
