November brought little change in drought conditions across the state. While the state received half of its normal rainfall for the month, at around an inch of precipitation, the drought held steady throughout the entire month. About 30% of the state is in moderate drought, thats the least severe drought intensity. Marion County is a step up at severe drought levels. 40% of the state is worse off than that in extreme drought.
