Drought Monitor

The drought intensity categories are based on a variety of indicators and local reports from more than 350 expert observers across the country. The Drought Monitor map identifies general drought areas, labeling droughts by intensity with D1 being the least intense and D4 being the most intense. D0 is considered a "drought watch" area where an area may be seeing the beginning of a drought or recovering from a drought (not yet back to normal).
