Cooler weather trend raises freeze damage potential
Iowa rainfall in June and July averaged below normal for state as whole. It was around 70 percent of normal in June and 71 percent of normal in July. However, in both months amounts varied widely across the state.
Northeastern Iowa was wettest overall, along with some north-central and east-central counties and a few far southwestern locations. The two month’s combined rainfall was more than 4 inches above normal for the northeastern crop district of Iowa, while more than 5 inches below normal for the central, south-central and southeastern districts.
