DRYING OUT, THEN HEATING UP...

The rain has moved out and now it's drying out across the Midwest. It was a wet week across the Midwest and it's been a very wet June.

In my local area in Cedar Rapids we picked up about five and half inches of rain since Tuesday. This brings the total MONTHLY precipitation to 8.70". This is the rainiest month we've had since June of 2015.

Now we're getting a much needed break for the ground and rivers. Some drier air is moving in, too, and this weekend will be more pleasant than last.

It will be warm, but humidity will be relatively low. Humidity will start to creep up a bit more Sunday and it will be a little warmer.
