The latest USDA Drought Monitor has been released and despite thawed soil a lack of precipitation has held the drought at much the same level as the previous week. Marion County is primarily in abnormally dry conditions, the lowest designation below normal, with high drought conditions in the north. Normal soil moisture is returning to the state beginning in the southeast corner, with extreme drought still prevalent in the northwest.
