Most of Area Has Above Normal Precipitation For the Year

Dodge City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) After a soggy weekend in our region the news is good when it comes to the amount of precipitation our area has received over the past year.  National Weather Service Meteorologist Jeff Johnson crunches the numbers.


Barber and Pratt Counties are still running four inches behind normal. The long-term forecast might pull us back a little as we head to the end of the year.

Johnson says our area has been out of what is considered drought like conditions over the last month or so.
