One hour above average

Posted: 12 Aug 2013 05:45 AM

The featured chart shows the hourly precipitation totals for Des Moines from 1 June up until 12 AM 12 August for this year and the long term climatology. Only the 11 PM to midnight hour has seen a total above the long term average. A majority of our precipitation during the summer season comes at night and that has certainly been missing this year. This chart does not include the seven tenths that fell so far this Monday morning. Unfortunately the forecast looks dry for the next 7-10 days with the heaviest rainfall again off to our south.

Good = 92
Bad = 10
