Moisture Is Needed

March 19, 2014, 6:33 AM by Scot Mundt

Moisture Is Needed

KELOLAND was able to get some much needed moisture to parts of the area during the latest March storm system that brought a round of rain and snow.  While the snow was heavier in some parts of KELOLAND than others, it added to the low moisture totals so far this year.

Here's look at where we stand since the beginning of the year.  Central and eastern South Dakota are very dry with Winner under average precip by more than an inch.  Pierre is two-thirds an inch below, Aberdeen under three-quarters of an inch, Huron eight tenths, while Watertown and Sioux Falls are around two-thirds under for precip.

While the moisture is good to bring the numbers closer to average, much of it does not soak into the ground because many locations are still frozen.  Also, the added runoff may lead to a greater possibility of ice jam floods on area rivers.
