Quiet pattern continues
We’ll be avoiding major storm systems over the next week. The long range only shows one minor disturbance at this point. We’ll look for that on Thursday. But it will only provide a fleeting stray shower. Expectations for rainfall will be nothing measurable in most locations over the next week.
The last update of the Drought Monitor last Thursday showed drought conditions now creeping in to southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. These conditions will only worsen as very little rainfall is expected through the end of October.
