Episode Narrative The extremely dry conditions that began in June continued in July across southern Wisconsin. Many locations did not see any precipitation until several rounds of thunderstorms moved through the region during the middle and end of the month. While these thunderstorm events held monthly precipitation deficits to between 0.10 and 0.20 of an inch below normal, the modest monthly deficits still increased the yearly precipitation deficits to between 3 and 5 inches. In addition to the continued below normal precipitation, there were several periods of extreme heat that increased the damaging effects on already stressed crops. The rain that did fall came too late for much of the corn crop, as it fell after the critical pollination stage.
Event Narrative The drought designation for Columbia County was raised from Moderate Drought (D1) on July 3rd, to Extreme (D3) on July 17th. Late month rains brought only minimal improvement to Severe (D2) for the entire county by July 31st.
