Some local residents may have seen rainfall Thursday.

“It was just enough to settle the dust,” said Chuck Magaha, director of Leavenworth County Emergency Management.

Magaha said pop-up storms were spotted all over Kansas and Missouri.

“”It was very, very hit and miss,” Magaha said.

He said the storms did not produce any significant amount of rain in Leavenworth County.

He said a storm west of the city of Leavenworth produced less than one-tenth of one inch of rain.

There will be chances for rain and thunderstorms this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

“We need a day of just a good soaking rain,” Magaha said.

But even a day of heavy rainfall would not end drought conditions in the area.

“It takes a long time to recover from a drought,” Magaha said.

A recent executive order signed by Gov. Jeff Colyer placed Leavenworth County in a drought warning status.

All counties in Kansas are in a drought watch, drought warning or drought emergency status.
