The latest drought monitor reveals that much of North Dakota is seeing some dry conditions.
Close to 80 percent of the state is currently abnormally dry– that’s what the yellow on the drought monitor means.
26 percent is in a moderate drought and close to 3 percent of the state is in a severe drought.
Areas that have seen the least amount of rain appear to be McHenry and Pierce counties.
We spoke to Tom Schrader about when we’ll get some relief.
“Well the heaviest rains probably not going to fall where we need it the most –up here where we have the severe drought in the North. But there are a lot of storms that are going to be slow moving storms tonight could drop several inches of rain down here in the South in The South Central — we need it here just the heaviest rain is not going to fall where we need it the most,” said Chief Meteorologist Tom Schrader.
