Drought Monitor


Check here to find the latest information on drought in Colorado County. The U.S. Drought Monitor is a map released every Thursday, that shows parts of the U.S. that are in drought. The map uses five classifications: abnormally dry (D0), showing areas that may be going into drought or coming out of drought, and four levels of drought: moderate (D1), severe (D2), extreme (D3), and exceptional (D4). 

The U.S. Drought Monitor is jointly produced by the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the United States Department of Agriculture, and the National Oceanic and Atmosperic Administration. Map courtesy of NDMC.
