WHERE WE STAND
For 2013 (through 9/15), the airport in Moline has seen 33.12" of precipitation. Normally we should only have 28.79". That puts us at a 4.33" surplus for the year! BUT, since June 1st (through 9/15) we've seen 9.97" of rain. The average amount for the same period is 14.93", so that puts us 4.96" below avg. for the 3.5 month period. Fortunately for lawns, farmers' crops, and gardeners' plants -- there is a good chance for rain late Tuesday night through early Friday morning! Here is the Weather Prediction Center's QPF (quantitative precipitation forecast) valid 7PM 9/15 through 7PM Wednesday.
