Iowa Rainfall In Past Month Leaves West Drenched, East Very Dry

Des Moines, Iowa – RadioIowa – A color-coded rainfall map of Iowa shows the western third of the state in deep purple hues while most of eastern Iowa is multiple shades lighter, in yellow and orange. Jeff Zogg, a hydrologist at the National Weather Service, says parts of water-logged western Iowa have seen 200-percent more rain than average since mid-April, while areas in the much-drier east are only at 50-percent.

While parts of southwest Wisconsin are experiencing near-drought conditions, Zogg does -not- think that’s likely here.

Compared to last week, the week ahead is expected to bring big changes in the forecast with warmer temperatures and the likelihood for multiple showers and the potential for heavy rain and severe weather.
