Forecast for July 4 weekend is all good

While rain can sometimes put a damper on outdoor activities, rainfall received in June over much of Kansas provided a welcome respite to the long-term drought. Fortunately, the Fourth of July Holiday forecast looks dry. And while inflows to some reservoirs increased, there appears to be no potential impacts on boating and fishing activities.
