Despite several days of some light rain over the last week, our drought status has not improved for Mid-Missouri.
Areas along and north of I-70 are in moderate-to-severe drought.
Areas between I-70 to HWY 50 aren't as bad off as the north, only considered abnormally dry.
Most areas south of HWY 50 are drought free.
Since Sept. 1 (data from Columbia Regional Airport):
Rain total: 3.43" (60% of normal)
