This long stretch of sunny and dry weather isn’t doing us any favors in terms of our drought. Eastern Colorado has regressed back to where it was thee weeks ago eliminating any progress made during the month. Northern, Central, and Southern Colorado did not change from last week. And the Western Slope now has a sizable region of Exceptional Drought in parts of Delta, Mesa, and Garfield Counties. It doesn’t help that the start of October looks to be continuing the trend of dry weather moving forward.
