This figure appears in chapter 16 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

Time series of the Palmer Drought Severity Index from the year 1000 to 2014. Values for 1895–2014 (red) are based on measured temperature and precipitation. Values prior to 1895 (blue) are estimated from indirect measures such as tree rings. The thick black line is a running 20-year average. In the modern era, the wet periods of the early 1900s and the dry period of the 1930s–1940s are evident. Despite occasional years of drought (2011–2012), Kansas has experienced overall wet conditions since the 1980s. The extended record indicates periodic occurrences of similar extended wet and dry periods. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
