Update on Winter Wheat Crop Status

Things are looking up in Kansas but are still grim farther south. 

Here are precipitation amounts from the past 30 days. 

And, here is the difference from average moisture during March.
Because of the cool weather in March, it is likely the crop in Kansas is running behind schedule. So, the rain might have significantly helped the crop. 

The Palmer Drought Index up to March 26 (which does not include the substantial rains in Kansas earlier this week) depicts the more serious drought conditions in Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico.

The forecast rain amounts for the next five days are fairly generous in Oklahoma but it may be too late to help the crop much as the wheat is farther along in its development.
