Fire and Rain
The pink areas represent fire weather warnings for today. As the drought has improved a bit in the corn and winter wheat belts, it has worsened in the northern U.S. With high winds, wildfire risk is very high.
Meanwhile, the Southwest monsoon has really cranked up with frequent, heavy rains. The green area is flash flood watches.
As my friend Greg Gamer used to say, "There is plenty of rain. What we have is a faulty distribution system."
