NASA Rainfall Analysis Showed a Stark Contrast Between Lee's Rains and the Drought to the West

Caption: The TMPA rainfall analysis showed a stark contrast between Lee's rains and the drought to the west. Anomalies for the one-month period Aug. 7 to Sept. 7, 2011 (areas in green) to well-above normal rain (areas in blue) along and east of the Mississippi due to the passage of Lee, while nearly all of Texas and most of Kansas are either below (yellow areas) or well-below normal (brown areas).
