The most recent United States Drought Monitor indicates that nearly all of the Southwest is experiencing some level of drought. Following a fairly dismal November, December precipitation has improved but not eliminated drought conditions. This short drought briefing focused on winter drought conditions and forecasts for Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah, as well as a presentation on the National Drought Mitigation Center's Monitoring Dashboard for Managing Drought Risk on the Ranch.
