A Wet July for the Eastern U.S.

July was a very wet month for the Eastern U.S., with parts of North Carolina through Florida receiving in excess of a foot of rainfall - up to 600% of their normal rainfall totals. A stationary weather system earlier in the month provided much needed rains to central Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. Out West, dry conditions persisted, further exacerbating the droughts and fire weather in those areas. This image was generated using data from the NOAA Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service's array of radar and rain gauge observations for July 1-31, 2013. Later this month, the NOAA National Climatic Data Center will release statistics on July's precipitation totals and historical rankings.
