...Abnormally Dry across Parts of Southwest Wisconsin...

SYNOPSIS...

From April 10 through April 17, anywhere from 2.50 to 3.50 inches of

precipitation fell along and north of Interstate 90.  This was enough

precipitation to alleviate the abnormally dry (D0) conditions across

west-central, central, and north-central Wisconsin.  Meanwhile, a half to

2.50 inches of precipitation fell south of Interstate 90.  This was not

enough to alleviate the abnormally dry (D0) conditions exist across all or

parts of Grant and Richland counties in southwest Wisconsin.


SUMMARY OF IMPACTS...

LOCAL AREA AFFECTED.

Abnormally dry (D0) conditions affect all or parts of Grant and Richland

counties in southwest Wisconsin.

STATE /LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACTIONS.

No know actions are currently taking place.


FIRE DANGER HAZARDS.

As of the morning of April 17th, low fire danger was seen across

Wisconsin.

As a reminder, citizens should always check with local officials in their

area before undertaking any outside burning.  Citizens are liable for

damages and suppression costs of any wildfire they may start.


RIVER AND STREAM FLOW CONDITIONS.

As of April 17th, the rivers in western Wisconsin were running near- to

above-normal.


CLIMATOLOGICAL SUMMARY...

From November 1, 2017 through April 17, 2018, precipitation deficits range

from 2 to 5 inches across southwest Wisconsin.  Due to this, abnormally

dry (D0) conditions continue across all or parts of Grant and Richland

counties.

PRECIPITATION/TEMPERATURE OUTLOOKS...


From April 19 through April 24, temperatures will average colder-than-

normal and precipitation will average near- to above-normal.  During this

time frame, the daily average temperatures range from 46 to 51 degrees and

the normal precipitation is around 7 tenths of an inch.

Beyond this time frame the 8 to 14-day forecast (April 25-May 2) from the

Climate Prediction Center (CPC) calls for enhanced chance of below-normal

temperatures and near-normal precipitation.  During this time frame, the

daily average temperatures range from 49 to 54 degrees and the normal

precipitation is around an inch.

The CPC seasonal outlook for May through July 2018 has equal chances of

above-, near-, and below-normal temperatures and near- to above-normal

precipitation for the Upper Mississippi River Valley.
