State Still Dry

Missouri is approaching its third straight year of dry conditions. According to the most recent data from the U.S. Drought Monitor, 96-percent of the state is experiencing dry conditions. State climatologist Zach Leasor tells Missourinet that the state is behind on moisture, which could affect the growing season…

Leasor expects above normal precipitation to impact the state through early April, however, his long-range forecast shows uncertainty for the summer. On the flipside, he says Missouri could experience an even worse drought this summer if the state sees near normal precipitation.
