The new drought outlook is out and it's nothing but good news for the Upper Midwest as drought conditions are expected to nearly disappear in the next few months. This may not come as much of a shock to many just because of how much snow we have seen this winter and how much of it is still around. But what you may not know, is that snow doesn't alleviate drought conditions, no matter how much there is. It's because the ground is frozen and none of the water can percolate into the soil. So until the snow melts and the ground thaws, it is unable to soak up moisture. So, once the soil thaws, it looks like there will be a plethora amount of moisture to get us out of our light drought conditions. Here is the forecast from the Climate Prediction Center (CPC).
