Drought expands

October 12, 2012

  The past week was bone dry over most of Minnesota. As a result, the U.S. Drought Monitor (http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/) shows that drought conditions have worsened in parts of our state. Here is the current map:

  The map and chart show that 99.95% of Minnesota is experiencing drought conditions, compared to 96.32% of Minnesota one week ago. Currently, 47.38% of Minnesota is experiencing severe to extreme drought, compared to 44.89% of Minnesota one week ago. The Minnesota State Climatology Office has detailed discussions (updated weekly) of Minnesota drought conditions at (http://climate.umn.edu/doc/journal/drought_2012.htm).
