The area was briefly out of drought in 2016 but for the most part has been in a drought for the last seven years. While the moisture was certainly welcome in the area it will still present challenges for farmers according to Egronomist AJ Foster with the K-State Extension office.

After the recent moisture, Western Kansas will settle into a dry pattern over the next week.
