Latest Drought Info
(Statement made May 30, 2019, from Keno and the NWS) 


As of this latest report, Colorado is 100% drought-free for the first time since the National Drought Monitor was developed 19 years ago. There are no areas in the state categorized as "Abnormally Dry" - sometimes referred to as D0 drought. Up until this new report was issued on May 28, Colorado was the only state out of the 50, that was unable to ever make this claim. Let's hope this is the last time for many years to come, that I won't have to run this report again!
