Two Months in a Row

Posted: 02 Nov 2018 05:34 AM

Based on unofficial IEM calculations, the northeastern Iowa climate district had its second wettest month on record in a row. The featured chart depicts the highest monthly precipitation totals. Both September and now October rank number one for the area. Thankfully the last portion of October was mostly dry, which helped to allow crop harvest progress and prevent any further flooding. Sadly, this area of the state looks to again be the wettest portion of Iowa over the next week or so. Hopefully rainfall totals do not get out of hand, like they did for the previous months.

Good = 9
Bad = 2
