Connecticut Drought Conditions Improve

Connecticut’s drought conditions have slightly improved over the last week.

The U.S. Drought Monitor’s report Thursday showed the extreme drought conditions – mainly in the eastern half of the state – have mostly vanished. Those areas are now in the severe drought category.

Only Pawcatuck in southeast Connecticut still has extreme drought.

Improvement was shown in the western half of the state as well. Those places have moderate drought or abnormally dry conditions.

More than two inches of rain fell over most of New England in the last week. Still rainfall totals for the year across Connecticut remain well below average.
