2011: Drier than past years

Posted: 02 Jan 2012 11:07 AM

Continuing along in the series of features reviewing the past year, we consider the precipitation departure from average for the year. Most of the state saw below average precipitation, which goes against a recent trend of having very wet years. Most of northwest Iowa is now analyzed in a severe drought condition with some concerns of limited soil moisture recharge before next spring.

Good = 25
Bad = 0
