Drought Monitor and 2018 Rain (so far..)

No doubt, the beginning of the month of September was a wet one.  In fact, it put Waterloo and Dubuque over the top as far as yearly rainfall.  Below shows the big 4.  The top numbers are how much rain has fallen so far this year, compared to the yearly average (Jan. through Dec.).

The recent heavy rainfall has also put an end to the drought for much of Iowa.  This week, 6.41% of the state is experiencing drought, compared to 18.67% last week.
