Though many areas in the United States have experienced an increase in precipitation this fall, others continue to experience dry conditions. New predictions from National Weather Service indicate drought from Kansas to Texas will likely continue through July. According to Agricultural Meteorologist Eric Snodgrass, current drought conditions are nearly as dry as previous notable drought events in the early 2010s, 1950s and 1930s.
The developing El Niño could change things if the weather pattern arrives sooner than expected. However, too much rain could also create issues. Even so, experts currently anticipate the drought will continue.
Beyond these especially dry areas, Nebraska and Iowa may continue to see drought relief as the season continues.
