Weather Service Discusses Potential Breaks in Drought

Earlier this week on Regional Radio, weather officials told us the rest of July could be very dry. 


Ed Shimon at the National Weather Service in Lincoln indicates after a dry July, August is showing potential for some severe storms to relieve the dry ground.



Shimon says we're setting up for a pleasant fall season...


Shimon indicates the State Climatologist is warning of potential stress in the crops as the drought deepens in parts of eastern Illinois. Earlier this week, Shimon warned we may not get another inch of rain in total for the rest of the month.
