Southwest ND (06/18/20)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota.

From June 1st to June 15th according to NDAWN Dickinson received 0.24 inch of rain. While the NDAWN station didn’t receive much rain, there were some scattered storms that brought as much as a half inch rain to some, but also hail to others. Over the same period, Hettinger is at 0.41 inch, Mott 0.46 inch, Beach 0.80 inch, and Bowman at 0.27 inch. The dry weather along with high winds have really dried out the top soil and stressed many of the crops throughout the region. Some small grains are beginning to head out early. It looks like there is a chance of rain later this week, we could really use anything we can get. From May 1st to June 15th Dickinson is at 1.52 inch of rain, Hettinger is at 0.88 inch, and Mott is at 0.73 inch. If you are seeing the impacts of drought be sure to contact your county Extension agent so that we can keep the drought monitor map as accurate as possible.
