May was a wet month in Hays, with a little more than eight inches of rain recorded.
According to official statistics from the K-State Agricultural Research Center south of town, Hays received 8.06 inches of rain last month. That’s just less than two and half times the average 3.24 inches for May.
Year-to-date moisture is at 11.69 inches.
That puts Hays already ahead of the amount usually recorded by the end of June, which is 11.27 inches according to the 151 year average.
The forecast from the National Weather Service office in Dodge City calls for a chance of daily rain through Thursday.
