Report Says SD Drought Conditions Mostly Unchanged

Report Says SD Drought Conditions Mostly Unchanged
BROOKINGS, SD -

State Climatologist Dennis Todey says drought conditions in South Dakota are largely unchanged except for a small area in the Black Hills that received some rain.

Todey says rain and somewhat cooler temperatures reduced the drought impact in part of the Black Hills. He says the central Black Hills have received above-average precipitation in the past 30 days.

Todey says rains also have helped some pastures in western South Dakota, easing fire danger slightly. Rain and cooler temperatures helped prevent conditions from worsening in parts of the state.

The climatologist says small areas have received rains that could help soybeans recover some yield.

The national drought report indicates that about 88 percent of South Dakota was in some level of drought as of Tuesday, with the rest abnormally dry.
