Moderate drought in place across the region; upgrade to severe drought likely

July 17, 2012

Moderate drought remains firmly entrenched in place throughout the region. With the jet stream running across Canada and very little, if any, significant weather expected in the next 14 days, severe drought will likely become the norm across northern Illinois.

See the latest drought classification here:

In the local Carol Stream area, we have actually received about 3″ of rain (depending on your exact location) in the last 2 1/2 weeks. This is about an inch shy of the average precipitation for the month of July (4.01″) and has helped lawns throughout the village green up.

Supplemental watering is recommended, however, as an extended period of dryness in the next month is likely.
