Few spots on the Drought Tracker running a bit dry

Last week, the Drought Tracker was updated on Wednesday before the Thanksgiving Holiday. Even with that early weekly update, we still have a few areas of drought we’re watching. No abnormally dry conditions can be found in our corners of Missouri and Arkansas. However, things change once you get into our corners of Kansas and Oklahoma. While much of southeast Kansas is in good shape, abnormally dry conditions start popping up as you work along the Kansas/Oklahoma border west of Baxter Springs. Areas west of Grand Lake in northeastern Oklahoma are running into some drought concerns with a moderate drought clipping parts of Nowata County and all of Washington County. Given the rain that we saw last Wednesday and very early on Thanksgiving, we’ll see if that brought any benefits to our few dry areas when the Drought Tracker gets updated on Thursday.
