July Rain Comparison

Here is a snapshot of the difference from one July to the next. What a difference and it's amazing how green the landscape is across much of central and eastern Kansas. Needless to say, the drought has ended for several areas of the state and the lake levels are quickly rising. Look for an updated drought map very soon, but we know the exceptional drought continues across western Kansas. The rains have been spotty here, and some areas haven't had anything at all.

The active pattern looks to continue into early August. It's interesting how the weather works sometimes. With all of the abundant moisture hanging around, it will be much easier to develop rain and storms compared to when you have dry soil and vegetation. So it's possible with all of the available moisture, the rain chances will continue to be quite high heading through August. We'll shall see.
