SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Eastern KELOLAND has had more than its fair share of rain lately, but there are areas of KELOLAND that could use more.

Central KELOLAND is an area that’s been dry. Pierre has recorded only 40% of its average rainfall since May 1 with a little over an inch and a half.

Mobridge has also been dry, but a little better than Pierre with just under two inches of rain. It accounts for 55% of its average since May 1.

Though it’s not showing up on the latest drought monitor, the dry conditions have our attention in central KELOLAND. In the meantime, central South Dakota will be living off water earlier this spring. When both Pierre and Mobridge had above average precip since March.

If no substantial rain falls in central South Dakota, we’ll see how long they can live off that so called extra moisture.
