Another Wet April?

Posted: 15 Apr 2015 05:39 AM

The featured chart displays the Iowa areal averaged precipitation totals for April. The vast majority of recent years has seen above long term average precipitation for the month. The total so far this year is on track to exceed three inches as well, but forecasted amounts do not look all that extreme for the next seven days. The featured chart a few days back noted that we are currently running a deficit for near term departures, so we certainly do need another wet April to get us ready for the growing season.

Good = 18
Bad = 19
Abstain = 6
