Upcoming Wet Three Days

Posted: 05 Oct 2017 05:33 AM

The featured map displays Weather Prediction Center forecast 72 hour precipitation totals between 7 PM last night and 7 PM Saturday evening. Most of southwestern Iowa is shown in the 3 to 4.5 inch range with most of Iowa even above two inches. This may be the most widespread and largest rainfall event in the state so far this year. Of course, a bit of pessimism rules after recent rain events have managed to not fully cover the drought stricken areas over southern Iowa. This event will likely set back the fall corn and soybean harvest progress as it would take a bit of time for fields to dry out from this much rain.

Good = 12
Bad = 0
