The Southwest is in continuing drought. Recent summer rains have improved but not removed drought from the Southwest. This webinar looked at current and forecast drought conditions for Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and Utah. Despite a wet summer, the Great Salt Lake has hit a historic, all-time low water level; this webinar also looked at the recently released Great Salt Lake Hydro Mapper tool developed by USGS and State of Utah.
