    There is uncertainty between different climate scenarios for future precipitation projections in the Southern Great Plains. Overall annual changes in precipitation are expected to be small through mid-century, with slight decreases projected from Texas to Kansas. The largest decreases in annual precipitation are expected in Texas, which may see 6-12% less annual rainfall by late-century.
