"BIG changes this week on the Drought Monitor. The photo includes the BIG picture which includes the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas and parts of Oklahoma. This map shows in red where the D3 – extreme drought designations are and there is actually D4 –exceptional (dark red) drought designation on the Oklahoma, Kansas border. Kiowa County moved into a D2 – severe drought designation. The majority of counties in SE Colorado are designated D2 category. There is now a slight portion of Baca County with a D3 designation. I wanted to show the readers that it is dry south of Kiowa County and those areas are suffering from drought conditions."
