totals surpassed the previous record of 1997-98.
Above-average precipitation was observed across
all but five of the Lower 48 states (Figure 1). Tennessee ranked wettest, while Wisconsin ranked
second wettest. Nineteen states, from the Great
Plains to the East Coast and south to the Gulf of
Mexico, ranked in the top 10 wettest on record
for winter and there were no states that ranked
below-average for winter precipitation. While
the heavy rain was widely dispersed, severe flash
flooding did occur in parts of California and significant river flooding occurred in portions of

the mid-South and lower Midwest. The record
winter precipitation set the stage for what was to
become a troubled planting season.
The statistics on winter temperatures mask
the fact that there were areas that experienced severe cold conditions, particularly the
northern Plains and Midwest (Figure 2). The
cold weather allowed for heavy snow events
throughout the winter with the snows contributing to flooding in the western Corn Belt. The
same conditions in the Northwest, in the early
part of February, resulted in additional stress

and an increase in livestock mortality.
On a positive note, it was the second time in
three years that widespread winter precipitation
resulted in significant reductions in drought conditions. The measure of national drought coverage fell from 23 percent to 12 percent, with reductions in the Western states from 55 percent to
25 percent and, by the end of winter, there was no
drought east of the Mississippi River.
Spring 2019: The most significant weather
event in the spring of 2019 was the continued
