Dry Conditions In Eastern South Dakota

January 23, 2014, 6:26 PM by Scot Mundt

Dry Conditions In Eastern South Dakota

Winter goes on and snow remains on the ground.  Like it or not, more snow is needed as we head into the spring.

The drought monitor shows dry conditions in extreme eastern South Dakota with worse conditions in Minnesota and Iowa.

Nebraska is an area of concern with much of the state dry to extremely dry.  This trend will be watched closely as drought conditions tend to migrate from one area to the next.  This will be more of a concern during spring rains as we try to get moisture to go over the dry conditions.

While there is snow upstream from North Dakota to the Montana River Basin, but amounts are fairly light.  So, more snow is needed as we head out of winter and into the spring months in order to get a decent spring runoff.
