Midwest Drought Summary
Precipitation was widespread over much of Missouri and into the Ohio River Basin, and with the cold temperatures, much of this was in the form of snow. With the cold weather dominating the region and soils freezing up, drought issues move slow this time of year. No changes were made this week to the region as the impact of the precipitation in the region will be slow to materialize. There are some dry pockets in both Wisconsin and Michigan that are not labeled as abnormally dry yet; these will be monitored in the coming weeks.
