Drought concerns remain in Missouri – Voice Of Muscatine

Drought concerns remain in Missouri

The state climatologist at the University of Missouri Extension says drought concerns are on the rise again even with some improvements over the winter.

“It’s not uncommon in Missouri to see these multi-year drought events. We’ve already had two back-to-back drought years.” And Zach Leasor says Missouri might be headed into its third year of drought.

Missouri had the warmest and driest February on record this year and Leasor says March has a similar pattern of warm and dry.
