    two days ago our local weather was saying Tuesday and Weds of next week were rain possibilities. Last night I see they had that downgraded to partly cloudy on both of those days. It seems our rain chances evaporate faster than the rain would….if we ever got any.

    Predicted rainfall here for the next 10 days is 0.05”

    We haven’t had any rain in over 2 weeks, so it looks like we are facing another full calendar month without rain.

    Ice fishing will be interesting. There are some good early ice perch spots that currently aren’t just low – they’re empty beaches that usually are 3-4’ deep flats

    I have had a 1/10″ in August in northeast Iowa. Probably less than 4″ total since May. Starts west of here and always fizzles out.

    This lack of rain is never mentioned on the weather broadcasts once the state fair started.

    Corn and grasses have very deep roots by this time of year and thus are not easiy killed or wilted by the lack of rain. The drought impact may not be visible, but the lack of August rain is simply a killer on corn and bean yields.

    I usually overseed around the week after Labor Day — and definitely need to again this year to restore patches that have died from the heat — but usually I can time it right before a stretch of rainy days so I don’t have to water. No way am I dragging hoses all over the place and watering. Even if you do water, that is never as good as the rainwater itself.

    We had maybe two minutes of sprinkles here tonight. Just enough to jack the humidity.

    Got about 30 seconds of rain here in Forest Lake. Not even enough to wet the streets. So sad bawling

    0.00″ in Northern Wabasha County along the river.

    Our trees are dropping leaves like mad as a result of stress/drought. If we get a few days of wind, most of our wooded hillside will be leafless.

    Nothing here either. Been since August 14 the last time I had a measurable rain.

    At least its feels much better outside today though.

    Wow that is a good rain for sure. The area from Brainerd eastward to the north of Mille Lacs and the south shore of Superior in northern WI were both in extreme drought so the rain received at least fell in the areas that needed it the most.

    Here is the updated drought monitor for the region. We now have the worst category of drought possible, but it does not include last night’s rain.
