I was hoping to have this posted days ago, but we finally have the official rainfall amounts from the month of May. Some areas picked up about 6 months worth of rain in just 31 days, which is why we've had the flooding problems.
Here is a short list of May rainfall amounts for selected cities in Kansas.
Dodge City: 2.35"
The surprising numbers are those from central Kansas. It's no wonder there was so much flooding in the Salina and Hutch areas during the month. Salina's average yearly rainfall is just over 32 inches and Hutch typically sees about 30 inches of rain in a calendar year.
It would be nice to space our rainfall out over the next 3 months so we don't burn up in the summertime heat. We will see how things pan out for us. Have a great week.
