Lingering Drought across central Illinois

Drought conditions persist from northwest to west-central Illinois, as well as in deep southern Illinois. However, no significant change in coverage has been noted over the last month.

In central Illinois, the latest issuance of the U.S. Drought Monitor indicated that moderate drought conditions were still being observed northwest of a line from Henry to Rushville.

Much of the remainder of central and southeast Illinois was classified as “abnormally dry” due to the long term precipitation departures from normal, although east-central Illinois was not in any drought classification.
