The Kansas Mesonet is introducing a new Soil Temperature page for the 2018 growing season. Building on our previous Soil Temperature page, it still displays the past week’s average, min and max soil temperatures at both two and four inches. However, it is now updated three times per hour, giving a real-time look at soil temperatures throughout the state. Below are some of the other new features. For more information about how we collect temperatures and how to use them, visit our Soil Temperature Explanation page.
