February 18th Drought Monitor Update

Weather

Thanks to last week’s snow storms we see significant improvement on the drought monitor. Regions of exceptional drought have reduced by almost a third. Extreme drought was also reduced by 15%. Most of these improvements were down south in the San Juan’s, but we also so most of Gunnison County reduced from extreme to severe. We will not see too much precipitation this week, but more precipitation looks to be on the way in the long term.
