It is beyond dry in OK. We often help contribute to the wheat and beef supply of our country. Why are we not on the list?

My mistake. I will correct it. Thanks for noting that.

Re-posted with Oklahoma data included. The OK information was part of the regional total but the line with the state numbers was omitted first time. Thanks again for reading and noting that mistake.

Not sure where in Michigan either! We may have had 2in. since first of Sept here in our county.Wheat needs water soon. Not much rain in next weeks forcast either.We have been drilling post holes last week and it is bone dry4ft. down. Normaly you would have a hole half full of water before you can set the pole.

Thanks for the comments. The Indiana station precip totals for Sept 1 to Nov 9 were: South Bend 6.44; Ft. Wayne 6.92; Lafayette 9.69; Peru/Grissom 8.30; Indianapolis 11.76; Terre Haute 10.56. Average for those stations 8.72. Michigan rundown was: Flint 5.89; Muskegon 7.69; Grand Rapids 7.71; Lansing 7.33; Detroit 4.70. Average for those stations 6.66. Data tabulated by the Midwest Climate Center in Champaign IL has similar findings. In the same vein, I am not surprised to hear the 23" number in south-central Illinois when Belleville numbers totaled 11.8" Sep 1-Nov 9 and Champaign had 10.54".

All your data for Michigan is centrally located. bottom tier of counties at least where I live have had nothing close to 6". More like 2. Drought not over here either.

Data gathered is that from National Weather Service stations where there is consistent and dependable reporting.
