Drought Conditions Improved In KELOLAND

May 15, 2014, 5:23 PM by Grant Smith

Drought Conditions Improved In KELOLAND

After a rainy weekend that led to a mostly dry week, you'd expect the drought to have improved across the Midwest. And you'd be right. The drought monitor shows that the drought has improved in KELOLAND.

Here is the current drought monitor, last week the abnormally dry stage, represented by the yellow shaded region, stretched as far west as Winner and almost reached Pierre. But as you can see, the drought has improved and now only stretches as far west as Platte and doesn't even reach Huron.

And looking ahead to the next month, the Climate Prediction Center has South Dakota in the Above Average for rainfall amounts so we can expect the drought to improve during the month of June. Looking further out, the Climate Prediction Center has this region seeing above average rainfall for the next 3 months.

Along with above average rainfall amounts, KELOLAND looks to stay in the below average temperatures for the next week.
