This Week’s Colorado Drought Summary – From the U.S. Drought Monitor
“Minor revisions were made this week over Colorado, where a 1-category improvement was made over Chafee and eastern Gunnison counties.  Recent stream flow reports are showing a slight recovery, and some recent precipitation has been beneficial.  Farther north, over Jackson, Larimer, and Grand counties, recent rains have provided some moisture, but not enough to move the needle away from widespread severe drought.”
