Reflecting on May’s rain and its drought assistance – Wichita, Kansas

Wichita, Kansas 2021-06-08 22:13:55 –

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Drying monitors are updated every Thursday. It was a welcome sight to see how the rain in May helped some drought conditions in Kansas. From Greenwood to Elk County, there are currently the smallest areas in the KSN display area that require the most humidity.

West Kansas was unable to overcome the drought that began to take root a few years ago. That is, until the lasting spring rain helps. In May, Goodland rained 3.52 inches, 0.71 inches more than average. Dodge City also saw 5.02 inches, 2.03 inches higher than standard.

Salina was also hit hard by the May 8-9 timeframe and was able to reach the moon at 6.62 inches, 1.58 inches higher than average.

As for Wichita, I might have been able to use it more. We were 1.19 inches below average! Not everyone has benefited from this active stretch, so it shows how important weather patterns and storm tracks are.

June got off to a dry start. Wichita, Dodge City, Goodland and Salina are all below average.

We are always at the mercy of weather patterns and can make a big profit if the conditions are right. We can’t expect much rain this week. Due to rising temperatures and lack of humidity, the next drought monitor update later this week could soon return to arid areas.
