The U.S. Drought Monitor reports areas of moderate precipitation most notably in western Colorado (1.5 to locally 3.5 inches). The precipitation was beneficial in the Upper Colorado River Basin and in southeastern Colorado. Dry soils were recharged somewhat, and stream flow’s notably increased. The large, intractable areas of extreme to exceptional drought remain entrenched, but a few areas showed mild improvement.
