Dry Conditions Across Iowa

As we’ve reported over the last several weeks, we could use some rain across the state of Iowa, especially the southern portion of the state.  Here’s the latest Drought Monitor that was released Thursday morning (8/31/17).

August was an abnormally dry month, and it appears the first half of September (at least) will be dry as well.  Here is the Climate Prediction Center’s outlook for precipitation, showing a good chance for below average rainfall.

Here’s a look at the average amount of rain that should fall during the month of September for Waterloo, Dubuque, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.
