Home values in Overland Park, KS are as close to bottom as most can predict, and the fear is that soaring home prices (due to shrinking inventories), the potential evaporation of REO and short sale opportunities in the near future, and a potential rise in mortgage rates will cause the best opportunities to fade quickly.
Monthly rainfall distribution and Potential evaporation in the region
In all other months, the potential evaporation exceeds received rainfall, implying deficit soil moisture situation for most of the year, reflecting a constraint in crop production in the region.
The rate of water evaporation measured in this study can be considered to represent the combined potential evaporation and environmental evaporative demand.

This means that higher temperatures and hence higher potential evaporation are occurring during droughts.
Dr Penny Whetton and Dr Ramasamy Rupiah, both of CSIRO Atmospheric Research, say that with most climate models, under greenhouse conditions tending towards decreases in annual average rainfall in the south-west, parts of the south-east, and Queensland, and increases in temperature and potential evaporation across the continent, the current situation where annual evaporation exceeds rainfall for most of Australia is exacerbated.
Previous research confirmed the connection between the measure of an environment's potential evaporation, or dryness, and fire activity.
