When you step outside into more than 3 feet of snow it is hard to believe there’s a drought. But drought continues and about half of the entire U.S. is affected, including much of the southeast and midwest. This March was the warmest in 110 years of record keeping in the southwest. Even with some areas receiving record precipitation in April, the drought is expected to continue in most of the west at least through July. More at the Drought Information Center.
