8-22 Drought Map

Mid-Missouri's drought status remains unchanged since last week. Areas north of the Missouri River are either abnormally dry or in moderate drought, which are the two lowest levels of drought.

Nearly 60% of the state is considered abnormally dry with 40% of that area in moderate drought.

Areas south of the Missouri River are drought free, mainly due to the heavy rainfall from earlier in the month.
