Drought Update

Last week, we had a good storm impact the state.  However, the heaviest of the precipitation fell over the northern half of the state.  Granted it was good to see anything, just wish it would have deposited more in the southern half of the state.  Here is the latest Drought Monitor:

You can see that all of southern Colorado is still in severe drought, with the far southeast corner in extreme drought.  Unfortunately, this pattern doesn't look like it is going to change much.  We will have a better chance for some showers and storms this week, but the heaviest of the moisture will fall in the northern half of the state.  Spotty showers and storms for the southern half...  Better than nothing, but we need a lot more to catch up with our northern neighbors...
