Above normal temperatures and below normal rainfall has led to worsening drought the past month over portions of western Kansas, and especially the southeast quarter of Kansas.

The threat for widespread heavy rainfall looks minimal the next seven days, especially over the southern half of Kansas. Consequently, drought conditions may continue to worsen.
