Cedar Rapids, IA – As the I-80 corridor in Iowa experienced significant rainfall this past weekend, Cedar Rapids’ drought situation persists. 

Official reports from the National Weather Service indicate areas along and south of I-80 received heavy showers, with some locales like Sutton, IL, measuring a deluge of 4.56 inches. Yet, Cedar Rapids, located north and northwest of the interstate, registered a scant 0.44 inches at local airports, continuing its severe to extreme drought status. 

The disparity highlights the unpredictable nature of regional weather patterns, leaving Cedar Rapids residents hoping for a change in the tide.
