Dry July Lets Drought Creep Back In

Dry July Lets Drought Creep Back In

What difference one month can make. Parts of KELOLAND were way above normal amounts for rain due to the wet June which pushed the drought to the south. However the dry July has allowed the drought to creep its way back into KELOLAND.

Here is the rainfall total departure from the climate average for July. As you can see, most of the area was dry. The yellow colors represent one to three inches below average for the month of July. But not everyone was below average, the gray colors are average amounts and the greens represent one to two inches above average.

And since the area as whole received less than average amounts of rainfall, that has allowed the drought to creep its way back into KELOLAND. Most of this drought is in the abnormally dry stage but the driest area is the moderately dry category.

The forecast does have rain starting Monday but this weekend looks to remain dry with temps mostly in the 80s.
