August Rainfall (so far)

We are a little more than half way through the month of August (can you believe it?).  We’ve had a few rainy days, meaning many of us have had above average rain through August 15th.

Rainfall Deficit

A cold front tracks into Iowa Friday, bringing the chance for widespread rain and storms to eastern Iowa, especially later in the day through Saturday morning.  Stay with KWWL for further updates on timing.

Here’s a look at rainfall potential through Saturday evening.  A half inch to one inch of rain looks possible at this point.
