Worsening Drought

Posted: 24 Jun 2016 05:34 AM

The latest US Drought Monitor was released on Thursday and it depicts a worsening drought situation in Iowa. D1 "moderate" drought classification was introduced over a tenth of the state this week. The featured chart displays the weekly areal coverage of analyzed drought in the state since 1 Jan 2015. This is the most D1 classification coverage we have seen since then. The most recent drought monitor update was prior to some rains this week, but some of the driest parts of the state missed out on these.

Good = 15
Bad = 0
