U.S. Drought Monitor, June 5, 2012

Moderate to heavy (1.5 to 4.5″) rains fell on south-central and southeastern Kansas, northern and eastern Oklahoma, and parts of northern Texas and the Texas Panhandle, but most of this rain fell on non-drought areas of Kansas and Oklahoma. Fortunately in Texas, the rain did provide some relief, with some trimming of Moderate Drought to Exceptional Drought areas in the northern Panhandle where 1 to 3 inches fell. Farther southeast, however, another dry and warm week expanded Moderate Drought across southeastern Texas, with some small areas degrading into Severe Drought that had larger short-term deficits.
