Rain and Drought

Thursday night heavy rain fell across northeast Iowa. Not an area that needs the rain. The map above shows the rainfall estimate for the month of May through the 4th and on top of that is the Drought Monitor. The Drought Monitor shows the area that is dry and needs the rain the most.  Not much has fallen in a good portion of southeast Iowa…where it needs it the most. Here is a list of monthly rain totals for some locations across the state.

Burlington 0.90″
Cedar Rapids 0.92″
Dubuque 1.18″
Des Moines 1.81″
Estherville 1.27″
Iowa City 1.72″
Lamoni 1.12″
Marshalltown 1.96″
Mason City 3.25″
Ottumwa 0.43″
Sioux City 1.22″
Waterloo 0.98″

Seasonal Snowfall

Snow may be the last thing on your mind with the warmer weather during this last full week of April. Temperatures have topped out in the 60s and 70s since last weekend.

Winter may have had its final encore for this season in eastern Iowa.

Let us take a look back. This season we have seen:

  • 45.6″ in Waterloo
  • 38.2″ in Dubuque
  • 41.6″ in Cedar Rapids
  • 26.7″ in Iowa City

Waterloo, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City will all go down as above normal snowfall years (for the 2017-2018 season). Both Waterloo and Cedar Rapids had 10″ more snow than average. Dubuque will be the only member of the Big Four to end the season below normal.

More above (and some below) normal snowfall years occurred here in eastern Iowa over the past five seasons.

Waterloo:

  • 2016-2017: 26.2″
  • 2015-2016: 46.0″
  • 2014-2015: 29.2″
  • 2013-2014: 58.0″

Dubuque

  • 2016-2017: 27.2″
  • 2015-2016: 34.8″
  • 2014-2015: 33.7″
  • 2013-2014: 63.3″

Cedar Rapids

  • 2016-2017: 17.4″
  • 2015-2016: 15.1″
  • 2014-2015: 24.1″
  • 2013-2014: 42.9″

Iowa City

  • 2016-2017: 11.7″
  • 2015-2016: 12.2″
  • 2014-2015: 24.8″
  • 2013-2014: 36.1″

Thank you for all of your reports and photos during the snow season. Now we look forward to your rain reports as temperatures continue to climb moving toward summer.

Reports from April 18, 2018 Snow/Sleet/Rain/Freezing Rain/Thunder/Graupel/Rainbow Event

We had a little bit of everything yesterday as an April winter storm tracked through the KWWL viewing area. A few saw a rainbow in Bremer and Black Hawk Counties and we even had a severe thunderstorms within the snow/sleet that produced some hail. Freezing rain, rain, sleet, snow, graupel (a type of precip that looks like tiny pellets of styrofoam), hail all fell from the sky yesterday morning before transitioning to mainly snow. The mix cut down on snowfall amounts but areas in the north had mainly snow, so totals were much higher.
