This summer no doubt has been quite dry across most of the state of North Dakota. The one minor positive is that we seem to get at last one thunderstorm complex a week. Sometimes two. In turn, there are portions of the state that have gotten adequate precipitation, yet at the same time, the nature of thunderstorms, there are spots that seem to get missed almost every time. Meaning, even my North Dakota’s standards of high variations, this year the spot to spot variations seems to be even a bit higher. In this same subject, many have asked me if I see a pattern change coming up, as of now, I think we’ll have to wait until the second half of August at the earliest.
