Steady summer rains have done their part to keep drought conditions at bay across much of the contiguous United States. The United States Drought Monitor’s (USDM) analysis on July 23, 2019, found drought conditions among their lowest levels since the organization began issuing the weekly report in 2000. The only widespread drought conditions so far this summer exist in the Pacific Northwest and in pockets of the southeastern states.
