Even though a late March snowstorm produced slick roads, and closed schools; the entire month was pretty sparse in the rainfall department. The official weather station at the Northwest Signal reported Napoleon had only .55 inches of precipitation last month. That’s about 2 and a half inches below normal for the third month of the year. The first two months of 2013 were both above normal in rainfall, so the soil situation is not that bad heading toward spring. The average precipitation for April in Henry County is 3.62 inches.
