SD Out Of Drought Conditions

(Pierre, SD) — After significant rains to start the week across South Dakota, there aren’t many areas needing moisture at this point in the year. Sioux Falls has had at least 25 days of measurable rain since the beginning of May. Storms moving through the eastern side of the state Monday brought more heavy showers. A separate area of rain moved through parts of western and northern South Dakota into Tuesday, bringing much-needed rain to the north. That’s especially for Mobridge, which was way short on its average over the last two months. Aberdeen also got a solid boost as well. The capital Pierre looks to be the one of the only cities still below average since the start of May, but most of the state is out of drought conditions.
