After nearly a year of climate change up the you-know-what, the “wet stuff” has finally pulled Kansas City’s dry-as-a-bone chestnuts out of the fire.
“In my blog today, I declared that the drought is over,” says KSHB TV weather wonk Gary Lezak. “It ended by having storm after storm after storm after storm. We had 31 inches of snow and that was followed by a cool, wet spring so far and that’s going to continue.”
Going forward from here, “As far as the summer, I’m not sure yet, but I’m predicting a wet May and June,” Lezak says.
What about a worst case scenario?
“No,” Lezak says. “We could have a new drought that could start but I don’t think that’s going to happen. For the drought to come back over us it would take more than just a dry summer.”
