Some Changes to the Drought Monitor This Week


The latest update to the Drought Monitor came out this morning, and the changes have been an overall positive across the area. Compared to last week, we have seen a drop in areas covered in abnormally dry conditions. The most noticeable change has been in southwest Missouri where we only have portions of Bates County still reporting some abnormally dry conditions. Our corner of KS is in good shape with no dry conditions being observed. In northeast OK and northwest AR, we still have some spots with either abnormally dry conditions or in a moderate drought. Again, we've seen a positive change overall in the updated Drought Monitor thanks to rain chances we've seen pass through over the past several days.
