Missouri’s dry areas got some relief

Missouri farms where it had gotten dry got some relief from recent rains.

That’s after a summer that began mostly wet across the state.

MU climatologist Pat Guinan says, “It was nice to see some areas of the state get some decent rainfall. I talk about the dryness, you know, it’s been a tale of two summers for our state.”

He says areas that got some relief from the dryness include West Central, Southeast and Northeast.

“But, the bullseye is right here in mid-Missouri as well as portions of southwestern and a little bit of area in south central Missouri that could stand to use more rainfall.”

The head will escalate this weekend before it moderates next week.

Guinan says there’s a fairly good chance of more rain between the middle and end of next week as harvest gets rolling. His weather update was part of the MU Forage Town Hall on Thursday.
