Drought Returning To Minnesota 04 Sep 13

The drought is back again, especially in the southern half of the state, thanks to mostly dry weather over the past two months. South-central Minnesota is currently 4-6-inches below normal when it comes to rainfall. National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Griesinger says they fully expect the drought conditions to expand unless more rain comes soon. He says that the latest report puts 55% of Minnesota’s landscape in moderate drought, a significant increase from the previous week.
