The given setup, along with the pattern of near daily rain chances tend to support this trend. Average rainfall across eastern Iowa for the month is roughly 4.5”.

Even though searing heat isn’t favorable in a wet pattern such as this one, tremendous humidity will be and we may have several occurrences of 80 degree dew points this month!
