Missouri weather was warm and dry for much of February.

The USDA says the average statewide temperature was ten degrees above normal and precipitation was more than an inch under the usual levels, with more than 60% of the state seeing abnormally dry to severe drought conditions.

69% of Missouri’s winter wheat crop is in good to excellent condition, 4% higher than in late January.

The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
