by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” According to the National Weather Service, Wellington received 6.56 inches of rain for July. Normally, this area receives 3.56 inches for the month.The latest U.S. Drought Monitor has Sumner County now in a D1 (out of five) “moderate” drought zone http://www.droughtmonitor.unl.edu/DM_state.htm?KS,HP. That means we are one step closer to getting back to normal.The City of Wellington has reopened all its boat ramps at the city lake and the lake level is now at 37 inches below normal not the 45 inches below normal stage of two weeks ago when the ramps were closed.So with all this good news, let’s keep one thing in mind…Weather is always temporary.According to Scott Smith, NWS meteorologist, cloud cover is likely to dissipate today and normal late July, early August 90 degree like temperatures will return.“There is a 20 to 40 percent chance of precipitation in the Wellington area between Thursday and Friday,” Smith said. “After that, I’m not sure the area will get too much precipitation. But who knows? It’s Kansas.”The three-month NWS outlook is that temperatures will be above normal. So this cool weather you are enjoying this week is likely not to last.“But, again, that is just an estimate,” Smith said of the three-month outlook.Nevertheless, the area just doesn’t instantly recover from a two-year drought. Wellington City Manager Gus Collins warned the council at its last council meeting a couple weeks ago the lake rose just one inch after a two-inch rain previously from the month. That was due in part to the city using three-million gallons of water during a very hot July day a couple weeks ago.If the NWS outlook is true, and we will get into the steamy consecutive 100-plus degree days, then drought-like conditions will assuredly return.“We most certainly will take extra precautions when we get to those conditions,” Collins said. “The city will ration in case of a drought, most certainly.”There seems to be some dispute with the amount of rain from the flash flood of last Tuesday. According to the NWS, Wellington received 1.6 inches of rain late that evening. According to the Sumner Newscow rain source, we received 2.5 inches of rain.“Rain totals for the county are hard to come by because in just a 10-mile radius you can have a variance of several inches,” Smith said.For example, at the Wichita Mid Continent Climate Control, which is the closest online weather data from the National Weather Service Forecast Office, said the total for the month is 9.52 inches.
