Drought improves in Midwest, worsens in Plains

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor shows drought conditions have improved in some areas and declined in others. National Drought Mitigation Center Climatologist Brian Fuchs says Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri continue to get much-needed rain.

“Last week, we had a pretty good storm system that made its way through the Midwest. Some areas saw significant rainfall for November, more like what you’d see in the spring or summer.”

Dry conditions remain in the Ohio River Valley and the Upper Midwest and worsened in the Plains.
