New Hampton Precipitation Record

Posted: 08 Oct 2018 05:35 AM

Based on preliminary data, New Hampton (north central Iowa) is already exceeded its maximum yearly rainfall total set just two years back during 2016. The featured chart displays the yearly totals from the site since 1893. A simple linear regression is shown and denotes a rather disturbing increase in yearly precipitation over this period. When the yearly record was set during 2016, it did not happen until the end of the December. This year it is being set with nearly three full months remaining in the year and near term heavy rainfall events forecasted this week.

Good = 14
Bad = 0
