Dry Conditions May Become A Problem In Northern South Dakota


While showers and thundershowers will be scattered through the evening in southeast KELOLAND, in northern South Dakota it’s another dry day. And those dry conditions continue to take their toll.  

While the latest drought monitor hasn’t changed much as dry and moderate conditions are common in western and northern South Dakota.

A look at the numbers since March first show many are below average.  We have some over an inch below average with include Sisseton, Britton, and Eureka.  Aberdeen is two-thirds of an inch below.  Mobridge is an exception with being a third of an inch above.

While these dry days may be good for northern KELOLAND for now, as it allows field work to get done.  Staying dry won’t do anyone any good as we head into the growing season. 

But, next week is looking more active with better chance for rain, which includes northern South Dakota.
