Drought conditions have not changed in the Dakotas over the week.
The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows all of South Dakota remaining in some form of drought and just short of two-thirds of the state in the two worst categories, extreme and exceptional.
North Dakota has nothing worse than severe drought. About one-third of the state is in that category. About 91 percent of the state is rated as abnormally dry or in some form of drought.
