Drought Roundtable: Analysts reveal how farmers in their states are feeling the brunt
The latest drought monitor was just released and it shows short term drought continued to expand across the southeast this week, making the majority of the U.S. covered in some level of drought.
As you can see on the map, abnormal to moderate drought has stretched across the Ohio, Tennessee and middle Mississippi Valleys. The Great Plains saw some relief after some local thunderstorms. The Gulf of Mexico also received some precipitation, improving conditions slightly in Louisiana and southeast Texas. Not much has changed in the Golden State though.
