Summer 2002 - Warm and Dry in Illinois

Maps and Data

The period beginning June 15, 2002, and ending August 12, 2002, has been excessively dry. It is not appropriate to include the heavy rains after August 12th because they mask the severe nature of the dry conditions in the following tables and maps. 

These data are based on preliminary numbers. More stations will report about two to three months after the fact. Data Disclaimer

More information on the latest 7, 30, and 90 days can be found under "Current Climate Conditions in Illinois" on the main page.
