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). You will need to set the drop-down menus for the current date, area type (state) and area (Texas) to get the most current map. 

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.
