Mixed Bag for January

Posted: 01 Feb 2018 05:35 AM

The featured map presents IEM estimated climate district areal averaged precipitation percentiles for January 2018. The map shows remarkable variability over the Midwest and especially over the high plains with a very wet area in Nebraska sandwiched by dry areas to its north and south. Of course, January climatology for precipitation is rather small to begin with so single events over an isolated area can goose these numbers a bunch. Having said that, the current situation in Iowa is depicted nicely with the southeastern portion seeing dry conditions again whereas other parts of the state got more precipitation.

Good = 11
Bad = 0
