Wet or dry? Drought or monsoon?

In Madison it has been an exceptionally dry June so far, and until recently the temperature has been on the cool side. What patterns show up across the region when precipitation and temperature are mapped based on recent averages?

Maps from the Midwest Regional Climate Center at the University of Illinois show the situation across Wisconsin and the larger region. You can choose from average temperature, temperature departure from normal, precipitation total, and precipitation % of average. Each of these statistics are mapped for period of 7 days, 30 days, and the current month.

Soil moisture maps are also available.
