June started off drier than normal across much of the Upper Midwest. Rain has been persistent enough to still cause problems, though. The ground hasn't dried out, there's still standing water in fields, and rivers are still running high. Just check out this incredible list of records the National Weather Service out of the Quad Cities put together.
Records have been shattered along the Mississippi River for the number of days above flood stage. Luckily a lot of sites have dropped below flood stage now but some are still going...
More rain fell though Saturday night into Sunday:
Some isolated higher amounts were over an inch... just more water we don't need.
There will be some additional showers and storms scattered about Sunday into Monday:
And some additional storms may be possible Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Some storms could be strong.. the Storm Prediction Center has a marginal risk for strong storms right now.
Still some uncertainty in the placement and intensity of storms right now.
Then there's a pattern change for the rest of the week.. more on the coming heat in my next post.
