The latest drought report from the National Weather Service in La Crosse…
From May 5 to May 11, anywhere from a half to 2 inches of rain fell across Floyd County in northeast Iowa. Elsewhere, rainfall totals were generally less than a half-inch. The highest rain totals were reported at Charles City, IA (1.90 inches); Strawberry Point, IA (0.80 inches); and Oelwein, IA (0.72 inches). While this rain was beneficial, it was not enough to alleviate the abnormally dry (D0) conditions and moderate (D1) drought across the Upper Mississippi River Valley.
