May Precipitation Departures

Posted: 24 May 2018 05:37 AM

The featured map depicts precipitation departures from average so far this May based on NOAA MRMS precipitation estimates and gridded long term climatology. Some areas of the state are depicted very wet, like most of Northern Iowa, and some areas are very dry. Of notice for locals to Ames is the dry area just to our northwest which includes much of the northern part of the city. As temperatures continue to warm and precipitation chances look rather meager, the areas that missed out on the rainfalls of May will be stressed even further.

Good = 8
Bad = 1
