U.S. Drought Monitor, March 20, 2012

Locally heavy rain across central and eastern drought areas contrasted with unfavorably dry, warm weather in southern- and western-most portions of the region. A second band of equally heavy rain developed from Norman, Oklahoma, into southeastern Kansas. Outside the heaviest rain areas, a soaking 1 to 2 inches of rain was reported, particularly from the eastern Texas Panhandle northeastward to Wichita, Kansas. In contrast, warm, dry conditions persisted in southern Texas (highs eclipsing 90°F) and from the western Edwards Plateau northward into southeastern Colorado and western portions of Kansas and Oklahoma.
