Largest Yearly Totals

Posted: 31 Aug 2017 05:40 AM

To finish off the series looking at Iowa precipitation climatology, the featured map presents the largest calendar year precipitation totals for long term climate sites tracked by the IEM in the state. As with the previous maps, there are storm totals from Harvey in Texas that are larger than even the largest yearly total in Iowa. This map does show a rather large northwest to southeast gradient in the state. Tomorrow's daily feature will look into why just a large gradient exists.

Good = 10
Bad = 0
