Wet February Ends Drought
Written by wendycorr on April 4, 2019
Drought conditions in much of the state have been mitigated, thanks to the wet February we had in most of Wyoming.
But the National Weather Service reports that March was much drier than normal across northwest and north central Wyoming, after record and near record precipitation and snowfall in February. Officials say portions of north central Wyoming, including the Big Horn Basin and Johnson County, are running precipitation deficits.
However, southern and central Wyoming generally had from 100% to over 200% of normal precipitation in March. Above normal precipitation in February resulted in the removal of moderate to locally severe drought conditions across Sweetwater County.
