Wet or dry? Hot or cool?

This summer, so far, hasn’t set Wisconsin climate records for rain, drought, or heat. However, the precipitation has been very uneven across the state.

An easy way to get a glimpse of recent climate factors is through maps. A convenient source of such maps for Wisconsin is the Midwest Regional Climate Center’s web site.

For shorter-term maps of recent accumulated rainfall, the National Weather Service provides some nice options.
