The featured bar chart is of monthly precipitation climatology for Ames. The blue bars are the average monthly accumulation and red bars are the average number of days during the month which have measurable precip. So for June, we average roughly 5 inches of rainfall spread over 10 days. In other words, we average 0.50 inches of rain every 3 days. Our recent weather for this month has been rather dry thanks to slow moving ridge that has kept the rainfall west of the state.
