Days to accumulate Two Inches

Posted: 14 Aug 2018 05:36 AM

Based on MRMS precipitation estimates, the featured map depicts the number of days one needs to go back in time before accumulating at least two inches of rainfall. This analysis is evaluated for each of the pixels in the gridded product. Two dry areas in the state stick out on this plot, most of southwestern Iowa and parts of far southeastern Iowa. The dark brown areas indicate between 50 and 60 days! The current forecast has some optimism for rainfall over southern Iowa, so hopefully it pans out!

Good = 12
Bad = 0
