Rain!

Over the past week, all 166 NDAWN stations recorded some rain, not all, but a high percentage recorded over one-half inch of rain and many sites recorded over 1 inch.  In fact, just Sunday Night numerous stations in western North Dakota recorded 1-2 inches of rain as a line of thunderstorms moved from south to north across that region.  We live in a dry climate, yet, getting wet only takes a hour or two under the right conditions.  Whereas, staying dry takes a longer period of time.  No doubt there is still dry concerns, even where 3-5 inches have fallen in the past week as it will need to rain more, but in the short term, many have adequate moisture.
