The latest U.S. Drought Monitor was released Thursday morning, and parts of Iowa are experiencing an Abnormally Dry to Moderate Drought. Most of the KWWL viewing area, especially across the north, have had plenty of rainfall in recent weeks.
This taken into account the precipitation that feel between July 5th and July 12th. Fortunately, some of those areas in southern Iowa have received at least a little bit of rain from the storms that tracked through Wednesday afternoon.
Next week, a ridge builds across the center of the country, and that brings in hot weather. Several days are expected in the 90s, and aside from a chance for rain Saturday night and Sunday, we are looking at a mainly dry weather patter.
