North Dakota got a decent shot of rain over the last few days which will help with drought conditions.

Although, the drought-stricken areas in North Dakota received the least amount of rain from this system.  Portions of northeast North Dakota which are in a severe drought certainly could have used more rain.  Same with northern North Dakota which is abnormally dry, and extreme northwest North Dakota which is also in a moderate drought. Here's the latest drought monitor map for North Dakota.

Which part of the state received the most rainfall?

Ironically, areas that are currently not in any sort of drought status or abnormally dry.  That would include south-central North Dakota and portions of southwest North Dakota.  Virtually all of our listening areas in Burleigh, Morton, Oliver, Emmons, Kidder, and Grant counties have sufficient moisture at this point.  We all know how quickly that could change, so as always we will take what we can get.
