|July 22nd drought monitor|
Just a quick update on the drought here in Kansas. It does continue even after all of the rainfall we had in June. The moisture hasn't been quite as generous in July, and some areas now are falling a little behind for the year. But looking into August, the weather pattern looks like it will stay active, providing us with more opportunities for rain and storms. It is nice to see that there are no longer any "exceptional" drought areas covering Kansas, and even in places where we still have the severe drought classification, those areas have been getting moisture.
|Warming trend into the weekend|
The forecast for Thursday and into the weekend looks dry and warmer. I think we've all can agree, temperatures could be much, much hotter heading into August, but for now, low 90s is about all the warmer we think it will get.
