DNR monitoring potential problems from unusually warm February | The Gazette

WARM FEBRUARY: February was the second- warmest in Iowa on record, prompting vegetation to come out of dormancy sooner than usual. That could intensify the dry conditions across south-central and southeast Iowa due to early evapotranspiration, according to a report prepared by the technical staff from the state departments of Natural Resources, Agriculture and Homeland Security, and U.S. Geological Survey.

Hydrologic conditions and drought have remained the same throughout the winter in Iowa. The wettest area of the state is far northern Iowa, receiving double the normal amounts for January and February, while the southeast one-third of the state remains dry.

Stream flow conditions are above normal across the majority of the state, except in parts of southern Iowa, which have decreased to normal levels.
