Drought Monitor

July 11, 2014, 5:27 PM by Scot Mundt

Drought Monitor

With the record rain in southeast KELOLAND last month it's hard to believe there are areas looking for water. But, you have to keep in mind much of the heavy rain only fell in southeast KELOLAND. Cities as close as Yankton, Mitchell, Huron along with surrounding communities can use more. In fact, Huron was an inch and a half below average for rain in June.

These areas are outlined in the latest drought monitor. While there's a thin strip of dry conditions in east central South Dakota, we don't need to keep taking a step back. You can even see the moderate category sneaking into parts of northern Nebraska.

There are chances for rain over the next several days before colder air arrives next week.
