Drought conditions in the Dakotas haven’t changed much over the past week, due to above-normal temperatures and little rain.
The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 66 percent of North Dakota in some stage of drought, unchanged over the week. Twenty-one percent of the state is in extreme or exceptional drought, down slightly from 22 percent.
The Drought Monitor says conditions improved in south central North Dakota but worsened in the north central part of the state.
Grand forks remains in the abnormally dry category.
