It should come as no surprise, Wichita is behind in its annual spring precipitation amounts – by more than 2 inches.
Usually, this time of the year, Wichita has received up to 5.68 inches in moisture since Jan. 1, according to Jaclyn Ritzman, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Wichita.
The last series of rainstorms that swept through the area brought 1.3 inches of rain to Wichita. Year-to-date rainfall is 3.49 inches.
The good news is that this week may be a chance to make up for the deficient.
A chance of storms with moisture could come Tuesday, Ritzman said. But the greatest chance is Wednesday night into Thursday and again throughout the weekend.
“It looks persistent,” Ritzman said. “We are looking at a chance for some good decent moisture for the area.”
