Episode Narrative Severe drought (D2) coverage expanded across northern Wisconsin in response to near-record low stream flows and large precipitation deficits. July rainfall was 2.93 inches below normal at Wausau (Marathon Co.) and 3.33 inches below normal at Marshfield (Wood Co.). The rainfall deficit for the months of June and July was 4.74 inches at Wausau and 4.18 inches at Marshfield.
County agricultural agents reported that crops were drought stressed and would be in even worse shape had temperatures not been cooler than normal. The report from Langlade County indicated a 20 to 25 percent loss of the corn and soybean crop through the third week of the month.
