Another round of rain nibbles into Wichita’s precipitation deficit

Nearly an inch of rain fell late Sunday night and early Monday in Wichita, nibbling away at the still-substantial moisture deficit in the city.

The .81 of an inch hoisted Wichita’s June rainfall total to 6.09 inches, according to the National Weather Service. That’s about 2 inches above normal for the month.

For the year, Wichita has recorded 12.16 inches. That’s still 3.75 inches below normal for this time of year.

There are more chances for rain later this week, with Wednesday currently shaping up as the best bet.
