Has it rained in the red area this week? It needs about a week of good solid rain.

Iowa has been in some state of drought continuously since July 2020.

The last year has been the worst of it.

Last night's rain will help. But we'll need about 10 more just like it to correct the problem.

Heard Clear Lake ice out earlier than those with decades of knowledge remember... and it's currently low.

Madison Chain was open in late February basically with a few large chunks of floating ice for a while.

Northern WI lakes are opening up. They're usually iced over until late April I think.
