According to 30-year data from NCDC 1981-2010, normal annual precipitation across this 24-county area generally ranges from 23-30 inches, with the lowest part of this range including far western locations such as Gothenburg and Cambridge, and the highest part of this range including far eastern locations near Highway 81 such as York and Hebron. Due to the serious drought situation that plagued much of 2012, most locations in the precipitation table below only realized between 40-80% of normal precipitation for the year.
