Drought conditions have eased across most of Missouri, but some parts of the state are still very dry.
Much of the relief can be credited to the remnants of Hurricane Isaac, which moved through the Show-Me State three weeks ago. Brian Fuchs is a climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He says, though, that portions of Missouri missed out.
