Nearly All of Iowa in Some Level of Drought

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Almost all of Iowa is now in some level of drought.

This week's National Drought Monitor Map shows nearly 99 percent of Iowa in drought or near-drought--with a small drought-free pocket covering just two counties of Northeast Iowa.

Another mostly dry week across Iowa shows an expansion of severe drought in Eastern Iowa, more moderate drought in the southeast corner of the state, and extreme drought in Western Iowa expanding into Harrison County.

The National Weather Service says there is chance for widespread showers and thunderstorms across Iowa through the weekend.
