Drought Update, October 4

Here is the Palmer Drought Index with data as of September 27 (the rains from Hurricane Ian had not fallen yet).  
Reds are dry, blues are wet.

The drought in the winter wheat belt (southern Nebraska to Texas is becoming severe to extreme. Here is information from the Oklahoma Climatological Survey.
Planting for the 2023 winter wheat crop should be in progress but conditions are too dry in most of the area. 

Some rain will move into the area but it will be light unless the remains of a Mexican hurricane hold together better than expected. Below is the forecast seven day rainfall.
I'll keep you informed over the next few days.
