Days to get two inches

Posted: 14 Sep 2017 05:38 AM

The featured map displays the number of days you have to go back in time before accumulating two inches of rainfall since yesterday. The map shows a very localized area between Des Moines and Ottumwa that have been extremely dry this summer. The small area in black would be over 80 days (more than 2 months!). There are plenty of other dry areas analyzed in the state as well. Having to go 50+ days during the growing season with two inches or less of rain is very dry as well.

Good = 11
Bad = 2
