The normal rain total for the month of July is 4.29" and we only picked up 1.78" in the Quad Cities! The normal total for August is 4.52" and we've only seen 1.05" so far this month!
Something else I've noticed this summer? There actually has been heavy rain South of the Quad Cities and North of town also. Check out this attached map from my friends at the National Weather Service in Davenport...notice that little hole around the Quad Cities? That shows the way it has worked out this summer we actually are in a little dry hole compared to our neighbors throughout the Midwest.
