Still Improving Drought Monitor

The latest drought monitor, released 12/14/17, hasn't seen much changes, but that's because most of the area is drought free.  We have just a few dry spots, mainly closer to the St. Louis area.

October has actually been very nice to us.  Even though most of it has been very warm, we have seen 6.31" of rain, above the normal about 3.5" a typical October sees.  November's 2.94" was good, but was slightly short. 

Only light amounts of rain and snow are expected the next week, most of which will not accumulate.
