Little improvement in Kansas Drought Status

Drought Map Kansas

Topeka, Kan (KNST) – The latest Drought Monitor report show much of Kansas was unchanged this week from last, although there was some slight improvement in southwestern Kansas.

The weekly report says overall, despite some localized heavy rain, most of the state didn’t see enough rain to make any significant improvements.

The report did notice a small expansion of extreme Drought in southwestern Kansas, which shows increasingly poor vegetation health, and it could get worse of significant rain fails to fall soon.

The report also commented that there were some minor improvements in the central part of the state.

But while the state as a whole has seen 150 to 260 percent of normal rainfall, the overall impact was too little to show any significant improvement.
