Dry or Wet is the Trend

Although the wet conditions in some parts of North Dakota have recorded much of the attention so far this growing season, much of North Dakota into western Minnesota have been receiving well below historical average precipitation during the past several weeks.  With the exception of the James River Valley area and the northern Sheyenne River region, much of North Dakota south of Highway 2 is actually quite dry.  With only light precipitation expected this week, the month of June will finish with precipitation amounts about 50% of average. With the evaporation potential very high this time of year with the summer solstice just occurring, a good rain would be beneficial, but at the moment, if you’re dry, you will likely have to wait until next week.
