US Drought Monitor

The Drought Monitor is a weekly drought assessment.  It provides a consolidated depiction of national drought conditions based on a combination of drought indicators and field reports.  This includes a map of drought conditions across the country and a more detailed, regional, textual explanation of current drought conditions.

Also included is a 6 week animation of drought maps, a 12 week animation , experimental short-term blends , and experimental long-term blends .  Blend maps approximate impacts that respond to precipitation over varied time scales, such as agriculture, topsoil moisture, unregulated streamflows, and most aspects of wildfire danger.
