Most of the Regional Radio listening area is showing abnormally dry conditions but not up to drought standards just yet.

The only parts of the state not considered to have drought problems are in the bootheel region northward to the northern half of Wayne County, most of Bollinger County and most of Perry County are experiencing normal conditions at the moment.

Northwest Missouri is also experiencing normal conditions.
