Dry Horizons: When will that drought end?

June 21, 2017

This map from the Drought Termination and Amelioration pages shows the probability of current drought conditions ending within three months.
The June edition of Dry Horizons has been released. It features a new tool from NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information that can help answer the question: How long is that drought likely to stick around? The Drought Termination and Amelioration pages are a customizable interface that provide information on the amount of precipitation necessary to end a drought and the likelihood rain will fall, among other options. 

This edition also features:

  • A new website that highlights the effects of drought on six agricultural commodities across the continental U.S.;
  • The NOAA Western Regional Climate Service's database that helps users locate experts on climate issues in the Western U.S.;
  • NOAA's quarterly climate and drought reports; and
  • A report on Montana's growing weather station network.
