The most recent drought information shows southeast Iowa conditions continue to deteriorate. According to the most recent drought information from the National Climatic Data Center, the more than ¾’s of an inch of rain we received did little to help the dismal conditions. While states in the eastern Midwest are seeing conditions improve with more substantial rains, Iowa’s are getting worse. Some areas in southeast Iowa had remained moderately dry up until now, but are now classified as extremely dry.
