For the Midwest, the monitor notes that only a few tenths of an inch of precipitation were reported in a few areas from Illinois and Iowa northward through the Great Lakes region and Minnesota, keeping dryness and drought unchanged from last week. "Most of central and northern Illinois, southern Wisconsin, central and northern Iowa and southwestern Minnesota received no measurable precipitation.

In its outlook for April 4 through 8, the monitor most of the contiguous 48 states should receive at least light precipitation, with 0.25 to 1.5 inches forecast for much of the country. However, that's not enough precip to dent the western Corn Belt drought.
