Drought creeps back

Posted: 26 Jul 2013 05:36 AM

The precipitation gains made this spring to practically eliminate the drought condition in the state are being lost thanks to a dry June and July. The featured chart shows the percentage of the state covered by analyzed drought condition from the National Drought Monitor. The most recent update to this analysis has over 50% of the state now covered by abnormally dry condition (D0). The good news is that there have been recent rains, but the heaviest totals have mostly missed the western half of the state. More chances of rain are in the forecast, but the heaviest totals will be to our south and east.

Good = 63
Bad = 6
