Dry conditions continue to spread across Kansas.
Officially, abnormally dry conditions now cover Lyon and most surrounding counties -- Chase, Morris, Osage and Wabaunsee counties. Portions of Coffey and Greenwood counties are also abnormally dry, according to the US Drought Monitor.
Winter is typically dry for the area, but TV-13 meteorologist Doug Meyers tells KVOE News the past couple months are a bit beyond the normal.
Some area residents had some snow flurries Wednesday night but there was no accumulation. The last significant rainfall areawide was in late October.
Meyers doesn't anticipate any significant moisture until we get past mid-December at the earliest. The jet stream pattern is pushing storm systems to our north and east, and Meyers says that may not change for the foreseeable future.
