The snow that has fallen in our area has done little to relieve the drought conditions.
According to meteorologist in the climate focal point of the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Missouri, Spencer Mel, the two snows that have fallen this winter produced only about a half an inch of precipitation. Mel says Northwest Missouri ended 2012 about 17 inches below average precipitation. He says this year is difficult for meteorologists to predict how much moisture the area will receive.
