Troy Lindquist, Hydrologist Meteorologist from the National Weather Service explains, “This really wet month got us out of the meteorological drought, but if you look at the whole last year and even the past two years. We’ve really had dry conditions across the area. So we’re really still looking at overall long term drought conditions across the area.”
