Although the county received about a half inch of rain on Wednesday afternoon, rainfall is still well below average right now.
The shower brought the precipitation total for the past 30 days up to 0.71 inches. The average monthly rainfall for this time of year is generally about 4 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
The average is based on rainfall totals gathered during a 30-year period, from 1981-2010.
Due to the lack of rain, Saline County is under a moderate wildfire risk.
Saline County also is still one of 16 Arkansas counties still under a burn ban.
