Drought Conditions

The latest CLIMAS soouthwest drought conditions report is out.

They’ve got the New Mexico Drought Working Group’s current map, which shows most of the state out of short-term drought (a couple of hotspots in Los Alamos and Lincoln notwithstanding).

Longer-term drought – “hydrologic drought” in the lingo, meaning conditions based on long-term rain and snow – is still a mixed bag. That’s reflected in reservoir levels, which suck less than they did a year ago. But they still suck.
