Drought conditions extend into NebraskaTell North Platte what you think

The heart of west-central Nebraska is abnormally dry, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said June 20 as summer began.

The past 30-days were very dry and warm, which could lead to rapid soil moisture depletion if the weather doesn’t improve, the USDA said.

Severe drought is the norm in western North Dakota and southward into South Dakota, with extreme drought areas scattered through those states.

The months of May-July are normally the wettest time of the year in the northern High Plains, when some areas typically receive half to two-thirds of their annual precipitation, so a lack of adequate early summer rainfall can impact the region for the rest of the year.

In the North Platte area, there is a 60% chance of rain during the night of June 27. A slight chance of rain is also taking shape on June 29, the National Weather Service said on Sunday, June 25.
