At this time last year nearly 68% of Iowa was experiencing drought conditions and at this time only 6.4% falls into the same category.

Currently less than one percent of the state is in severe drought, and that can be found in south-central Iowa mostly in Davis and Appanoose Counties. Also 2.15% of Iowa is in moderate drought and 6.4% is abnormally dry. At the start of the summer three months ago almost 24% of Iowa was abnormally dry.
