AFFECTED AREAS:
Cass County, IL

Start Date: 9/9/2017 -  
Nearer to normal precipitation in August helped ease dry conditions, but 0.03 inches of rain in past 16 days has increased dryness. Mild temperatures have mitigated the situation. Fields, pastures, lawns all show signs of stress. Area creeks, ponds and rivers are below typical levels for this time of year. We have fox drinking from our birdbath.
