Latest drought monitor

















Hot off the presses: the latest Kansas drought monitor (first graphic, above).  Click here for more information.  Below that is a 5-day precipitation forecast.  Right now, it doesn't look like much (if any) for the areas that really need it (dark red in western Kansas-D4).

Nice Election Day...weekend changes

Have you voted yet?

OK, the politics part of the blog is done, so it's back to weather.  The following is the precipitation forecast from the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center.  While the graphic is valid from 6 p.m. tonight through 6 p.m. Sunday night, the chance of rain won't be here until the weekend.

I'm not pleased obviously with the lack of moisture forecast for parts of western Kansas but am optimistic for the central and east.  We'll see how things evolve over the next few days.
