MN Precipitation Average (1961-1990)

This data set depicts 30-year averages (1961-1990) of monthly and annual sum precipitation for<br/>Minnesota. These isolines and regions were created using kriging and latticecontour operations on precipitation point data from a 5-state area. Data is stored in a regions model, with separate regions for each monthly and annual sum 30-year average (e.g., region.apr represents the average April sum precipitation across Minnesota for the period 1961-1990).
