State and Local Drought Conditions

In the last week, Iowa has gone from having over 99% of its area experiencing zero drought conditions, to almost 20% of the state being considered abnormally dry. Numbers are even higher locally with all but the northern edge of Marion County falling into the abnormally dry distinction, and far more than the majority of South Central Iowa as a whole experiencing drought conditions.
