The rain we got in the Northland on Tuesday was much needed, but unfortunately it still wasn’t enough to tilt us above normal for the month, at least in much of northern and northeastern Minnesota.

Precipitation totals so far this month are running just 25% of normal in much of north-central and northeast Minnesota, but in the Arrowhead only 10% of normal.

Northwest Wisconsin has fared better as of late with precipitation totals for May 2020 running 50-75% of normal.

With no rain in the forecast for the rest of this month, May 2020 should finish in the top 10 driest on record at the following locations in the Northland.

Duluth (tied for 5th driest May on record)

Brainerd (6th driest May on record)

Hibbing (6th driest May on record)

Note: Ashland, Wisconsin was having its driest May on record up until a few days ago, and now May 2020 won’t even rank in the top 20 driest on record.

Thanks for reading!
