Dry Concerns Continue

The dry summer continues to be the number one topic in ag circles even with the recent rains.  As is usually the case, conditions vary greatly from spot to spot.  If you look at maps, it gives the illusion that broad areas of the region have very similar conditions.  Yet, this is not the case.  There are areas that are actually wet at the moment, and areas that are listed as not being all that dry, that are extremely dry.  Meaning what you see on drought maps, isn’t necessarily accurate. Looking forward, the same pattern that has been in place looks to be staying in place.  There will be some precipitation Thursday night into Friday and at other times, but more dry than wet for another 10 days.
