February Precipitation

This is the total precipitation for the 30-days ending at 7am this morning. We are emphasizing the winter wheat zone because of the worldwide shortage. 

Below is the difference from average precipitation (rain and melted down snow). Unfortunately, the yellow is where the drought got even worse. In areas where it is the background color, things stayed the same -- which is unfortunate because the area was already quite dry. 
Keeping in mind that winter wheat is planted in September and harvested from late May to July, in Kansas, many areas have wheat rated poor or very poor. The worst problem, by far, is drought.
