Drought conditions continue in southeastern Colorado

Despite mountain snows and heavy summer rains, many places in Colorado are still seeing drought conditions according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture(USDA).

The U.S. Drought Monitor shows that the southeastern part of Colorado is seeing the worst conditions; some areas are even listed as "exceptional drought", which is considered the worst designation.

Snowpack levels are above average in many river basins, but the real levels will be known in the spring when the mountains see most of their snow. (Map:USDA)
