The U.S. Drought Monitor says in a report released Thursday that the amount of Kansas in extreme or exceptional drought dropped from about 70 percent to less than 65 percent.

But long-term moisture shortfalls still persist across the state. The National Weather Service says Kansas still has "precipitation deficits" of up to 20 inches in much of the state, particularly in southern and eastern sections.
