Happy Thursday everyone. The latest release of the drought monitor shows that we are seeing statewide improvement. The moderate drought bubble has expanded in South/Central Colorado. While we are seeing improvement statewide locally on the Western Slope we aren’t seeing any improvements. Exceptional drought has now expanded to cover most of Grand County. We will be seeing a cold front come through this weekend. This system will be bringing rain and snow across the state from Saturday into Monday. While this will most certainly help with the drought it will take several systems like this to completely alleviate it.
