October Rainfall (So Far…)

With October being almost halfway done (can you believe it?), portions of eastern Iowa have already received their average monthly rainfall totals (and then some).  Meanwhile, others haven’t had quite as much as the average monthly totals, but are on course to meet them as we head into the second half of the month.

As you all know, it was a dry second half of summer into the first part of fall.  We took a look back at our current October rainfall (through October 12th), and found out how many days prior to this month, did it take to receive the amount of rain we’ve received in the first 12 days of the month.  Here’s what we found.

There is more rain in the forecast as we head into Friday and Saturday.  Rainfall totals across the KWWL viewing area will be between 0.50″ in northwestern portions of the area, to 2.00″ in eastern and southeastern portions of the area.
