Experts on the Governor’s Drought and Water Supply Advisory Committee are concerned about moisture levels in the state. They outlined the state’s “worrisome” March drought conditions during a status briefing Thursday.

Last fall was fairly dry in Montana. Outside of a few scattered, but significant snow storms this past winter, the state’s drought status hasn’t changed much since then.

The U.S. Drought Monitor’s new drought status map shows a sandstone-colored stripe, illustrating moderate drought conditions, swooping from northcentral Montana to the southeast.
