Drought update

June 7, 2012

  Eastern parts of the Twin Cities metro area saw some rain last night, but it’s been a dry June for most Twin Citians. At MSP airport, only two-hundredths of an inch of rain has fallen this month. Most of us are enjoying this drier stretch after the second wettest May in Twin Cities history.

  In early May, much of Minnesota was in either severe or moderate drought. Here’s the situation now:

  Moderate drought is now confined to northwestern Minnesota, and no part of Minnesota is classified as being in severe drought. A more detailed discussion on Minnesota drought conditions can be found at the Minnesota State Climatology Office site: http://climate.umn.edu/doc/journal/drought_2012.htm .

  We’ll have a few rain opportunities tonight and later this weekend. In between, we’ll have some dry hours for lawn mowing and outdoor fun. 

  (Friday AM update: Some spots in the metro could see a passing shower/t-storm this afternoon.)
