Drought status for Sedgwick County has improved, thank you Mother Nature

Earlier this year, most of Sedgwick County was in "Extreme Drought" Status.  How dry things were, was being compared to the Dust Bowl years.

Thanks to Mother Nature providing some much-needed moisture since a much drier than normal spring, that status has improved to, "Severe Drought" for more than half the county.  There's now far less red and more dark yellow on the drought map, which is a good thing.

Kansas Drought Map Sep 2023The Wichita Metro received about 1.5 inches of rain yesterday, which will only improve the drought picture.  The area historically receives about 3 inches of rain during the month of September and coupled with the cooler temperatures, things should really start to green up, making way for some beautiful fall colors.

Here's a snapshot of what's taken place so far this year:

With fall planting in mind, we've got some great weather in the forecast!
