Unfortunately, it doesn't look like any relief for them or for the I-80 corridor through Iowa.
Last good rain here was on 5/3 (2.16"). Since then (73 days), only 3.17" has fallen (none of that in July so far) and out of that 3.17", all of that fell in amounts under 1/3", which was just enough to add some more humidity. Just got our electric bill. Last time we consumed over 1395 KWH/month was in July '95 (1404KWH) & Aug of '95 (1547KHW).
