Forecasters expect near-normal summer, fall


Last week was the driest for Iowa since early April, according to State Climatologist Harry Hillaker. Hillaker's summary of the week's weather was part of a U.S. Department of Agriculture report released Monday.

The dry weather boosted Iowa crops, the USDA concluded. But it also started dipping into soil moisture reserves and, if it continues, could leave some areas in need of rainfall.

None of those reports, of course, could take into account widespread rain that fell on Iowa, including southeast Iowa, on Tuesday.
