Even after the early snow storm we did not see much change in our most recent drought monitor. The good news is that the only changes in this weeks update are positive. Areas of Costilla, Huerfano, and Las Animas counties have seen extreme drought downgraded to severe. Sadly this next week’s weather will not be helpful in terms of alleviating this drought. High pressure will limit our rain chances and the next big chance at precipitation is close to two weeks out.
