Slight improvements in this week's Drought Monitor.
Abnormally Dry locations have decreased in the southern half of the state. Severe Drought decreases somewhat in our central counties.
Taking a closer look into Eastern Iowa, Severe Drought decreased a good amount through Waterloo and Cedar Rapids. Moderate Drought has been reduced in Oelwein and Elkader. Abnormally Dry conditions improved near Decorah.
Here's a look at a comparison between last week and this week. The most recent Drought Monitor is on the left.
