Still no improvement

Posted: 28 Sep 2012 05:40 AM

The weekly update to the US Drought Monitor is out and there is no significant improvement to report in the state. Of course, it would need to rain first for things to improve and rain has been difficult to come by this September. All of the state remains in at least the D2 (Severe) categorical drought. The forecast has little hope of rain and temperatures look to warm into next week. The dry and warm weather has allowed the crops to be harvested at a record rate. The somewhat early frost has even helped to speed this process up some more!

Good = 53
Bad = 13
