30 Day Departures

Posted: 10 Oct 2016 05:33 AM

The featured map presents 30 day precipitation departures over the midwestern US based on NWS COOP reports and RADAR based precipitation estimates. The wettest departures are analyzed from eastern Kansas up into southwestern Minnesota. Even with such high departures, on only needs to travel a bit further south to southeastern Iowa to find drier than average conditions. Precipitation totals over the next seven days look rather meager, which will be helpful for the crop harvest progression.

Good = 9
