Intermountain West Drought Early Warning System

Conditions for the week of June 5-11, 2019

Across most of the region, dry conditions prevailed with the exception of some isolated shower activity in eastern Colorado and New Mexico where accumulations were generally less than an inch. A re-assessment of long-term drought conditions on the U.S Drought Monitor map for the Four Corners region led to reductions in areas of Abnormally Dry (D0) and Moderate Drought (D1) where the vast majority of drought indicators (within the last 12-months) and absence of drought impacts supported improvements. Both satellite-based vegetation health indices and reports on the ground have indicated widespread green-up across much of the Four Corners region.
