Drier Conditions in Part of the High Plains


After above average rainfall some parts of our area are seeing abnormally dry conditions.

The southeastern area of the High Plains has been seeing a drier condition as summer comes to an end and fall nears.

“We are starting to see what is called abnormally dry conditions and what that means is we started to see precipitation not really come into that area so it just getting a little drier than normal,” said Melissa Beat with the National Weather Service.

Being drier than normal does have some consequences, beat with the National Weather Service says they have been hearing of some grass fires in the area.

She says the good thing is, with all of the additional moisture this year, the conditions aren’t too much of a threat.

“Conditions, you know with all the extra precipitation that we have received has helped get grasses going and pastures really greening up.”

Meteorologists do expect the area to start seeing more precipitation and help the areas who are seeing dry conditions as winter gets closer.
