QUAD CITIES - Remember all that excessive rain back in June? For many of us, it's been an abrupt switch to excessive lack of rain.
Much of the Quad-City area hasn't seen measurable rainfall for about two weeks.

Due to the ample heat and lack of rain, drought conditions are beginning to set in around the region.
The latest U.S. Drought Monitor shows the persistent dryness in Southeast Iowa and Northeast Missouri expanding northward along the Mississippi valley as far north as Scott & Rock Island Counties. Moderate Drought conditions have now taken hold in Henry and Des Moines Counties in Iowa, and Henderson and Warren Counties in Illinois.
Luckily rain chances will increase for much of us this weekend into the first part of next week.
