Paired with warmer than average temperatures have caused the development of drought conditions across southern Wisconsin (and nearby areas). According to the HPRCC portions of Wisconsin are running 2-8" below average since April!
Observed precipitation in southern Wisconsin measures hardly 2.0" or less since April. If you do quick math using the departures above, normal precipitation would be around 6-10" for the period.
The drought monitor from https://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/ shows southern Wisconsin in drought conditions with severe level drought in southeast Wisconsin. The data is slightly old. The next update from the drought monitor will be posted on Thursday 6/17/2021.
Safe to say we could use some rain!
