Mitchell still below normal for moisture
Mitchell received four hundredths of an inch of rain Thursday morning, which didn't quite bring the area's precipitation up to normal, according to experts.
With the shower Thursday, Mitchell's total precipitation for the year is at 8.57 inches, about 1.81 inches below normal, said Brad Temeyer, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls. For the month of June, Mitchell has received 3.84 inches, which includes the four hundredths from Thursday morning. The normal total for June is 3.65 inches.
He said rain that will move through the area this weekend, and has the potential to add to the normal total precipitation.
