Hawaii crop weather review for the week ending Sunday (Sept 17)

MEDIA RELEASE

Weather Review

On September 12, the U.S. Drought Monitor reported that 90.65 percent of the State was abnormally dry or drier. In Hawaii, deteriorating pastures and vegetation brought moderate drought conditions into southwest Kauai while below-normal rainfall on 1 to 3-month time scales led to abnormal dryness development on the lower Kona slopes on Hawaii Island. Moderate drought also expanded westward from Maui across Kaho’Olawe Island. In contrast, relatively heavy August rains led to the removal of moderate drought from western Lanai, and improvement to moderate drought in southwestern Maui. Finally, limited improvement to former severe dry and moderate dry conditions was noted on northeast parts of the Big Island. Complete information provided by the Drought Monitor can be found on their website at droughtmonitor.unl.edu. For the week ending on September 17, 2017, the state rainfall averaged 0.42 inches.
