Episode Narrative Northeastern Minnesota continued to be in a D3 (extreme) drought according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. A continuing trend of below normal precipitation that plagued northeastern Minnesota in the summer and early autumn continued through October with monthly precipitation falling short of the historical normal by one to two inches. Duluth recorded 1.78 inches of precipitation for the month, which was 0.68 inches below normal. Rainfall deficits from May through October exceeded six inches in many areas. Most of northeastern Minnesota's rivers and streams remained in the lowest 10th percentile of water flow according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
