Mid-Year Rainfall Update

With six full months of a very wet and rainy 2013 under our belt it’s time to assess the situation to get an idea of where we stand statistically with our overall rainfall totals.  First of all, we’ve already surpassed the entire rainfall total of a very dry 2012 which was a paltry 24.85″, eliminating the drought headlines […]

The cut-off low that has been plaguing our area for most of the past week continues to keep things fairly unsettled for us today, but at least just sprinkles and very light, brief rain showers are expected in what looks to be the last day we’ll be in this gloomy scenario.  The storm system will […]

A Soggy June With Still Another Week To Go

In a word, our weather this week certainly has been gloomy thanks to persistent cloud cover from a large scale storm system that has really taken its time in crossing the Upper Midwest, but a couple of other words could absolutely be contenders as well including: murky, dreary, and even soggy as showers have been […]

What a nasty turn of events for us in our weather picture over the past 24 hours!  While it certainly could be worse–we don’t have tornadoes or heavy snow in the region, thankfully–but it absolutely could be better.  We’ve gone from sunny skies and highs in the lower 60s Monday afternoon to dreary, cool, damp […]

A Soggy Thursday

July 22, 2010 0 Comments

It certainly has been a rather gray and wet day so far for us thanks to the passage of a thunderstorm complex through the heart of our viewing area.  While flooding hasn’t been an issue thus far from these heavy showers, there still exists the potential for some rising river levels and wet basements as […]

Heavy Rainfall This Morning

July 7, 2010 0 Comments

Earlier today, parts of northeastern Iowa had to deal with a massive deluge of rain from a line of thunderstorms that just didn’t want to move out.  Those storms have since moved along and weakened significantly, but not before dropping huge amounts of rainfall in just a few hours shortly after sunrise.  We have plenty […]
