(Des Moines) There was no where in the state drier than Atlantic during the month of July.
“Atlantic actually had the lowest monthly total I have seen for the state in this current month of July with just thirteen-hundredths reported there,” stated State Climatologist Harry Hilaker.
He says that was actually the second lowest rainfall amount for the month of July for Atlantic.
“As everyone probably guessed the only drier one was last July,...2012… when there was only a trace of rain for the month.”
It was also the fifth straight month Iowa recorded below normal temperatures.
