Dry end of May
This spring has been know mostly for wet and cool conditions, something that has changes dramatically over the past two weeks. The second half of May has given farmers and gardeners the opportunity to plant after such a soggy spring. However, now as lawns start to brown, we could use some rain.
The first half of the month we were running well above normal with rainfall, now we're more than an inch behind. There are few chances for rain over the next seven to ten days. The best chance will come Wednesday evening ahead of a cold front with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Keep watering the lawn and garden regularly, the outlook calls for cooler and drier conditions across the center of the country. The latest 10-day forecast also has us mostly dry through next week.
