Drought conditions are stable in North Dakota over the week, but they have worsened again in South Dakota.
The weekly U.S. Drought Monitor map shows that 57 percent of South Dakota is now in the two worst categories of drought, extreme and exceptional. That is up from about 53 percent last week. The amount of the state in exceptional drought - about one-third - is unchanged over the week.
North Dakota continues to have no areas in exceptional drought, and only about 5 percent of the state is in extreme drought.
All of both states suffer from some degree of drought.
