Minnesota Drought Conditions Slowly Improving

(Undated) — Drought conditions in Minnesota are slowly improving after several weeks of rain and snow. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map released yesterday shows that more than six-percent of the state has no form of drought, up from just over four-percent a week ago. A small portion of southeast Minnesota near the Iowa border is still listed in extreme drought, a huge improvement from mid-September when nearly a quarter of the state was in that category. Most of the state is now considered abnormally dry or in moderate drought.
