Rainfall Widespread Yet Localized Across Contiguous U.S.
USAgNet - 08/12/2022

Rainfall was highly variable last week, amounting to more than 1.5 inches in most areas from southern Missouri and northeastern Arkansas through central Illinois.

At the same time a number of patches across the Upper Midwest, middle Mississippi Valley, Ohio Valley, and the Gulf Coast east of Texas, got more than 3.5 inches.

But according to today's Drought Monitor report of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), many spots in these regions recorded only a few tenths of an inch of rain or less, with tight gradients between heavy rain and lesser amounts common.

Plus, little or no rain fell on the central and southern Great Plains, much of the central Rockies, and the Far West.

The exception was heavy monsoon rains streaming as far as southern Montana, the Great Basin and parts of the Sonoran Desert.

Death Valley, CA, set an all-time record for 24-hour rainfall, being doused with 1.46 inches August 5-6.
