Drought monitor was kind to us last week

Drought conditions picking up out west

JOPLIN, Mo. - Last week, the Drought Monitor had us in good shape across our area. No drought conditions were reported before the official update came out on Thanksgiving. However, some moderate drought conditions were noted around the Wichita area with severe to extreme drought conditions popping up in southwestern Kansas. From the rain we saw over the Thanksgiving weekend, we should remain in good shape when the updated monitor gets released on Thursday. We'll continue to keep an eye on our area and hope that rain chances can find their way into southwestern Kansas over the next several days.
