Drought conditions continue to blanket the state. Pete Boulay is a climatologist with the Minnesota DNR:
“Three months ago we had 40-percent of the state under moderate drought and that was all in northern Minnesota and now here we are in June we have 40-percent of the state under drought in southern Minnesota. So the whole focus of the dryness shifted south a bit.”
Boulay says the next shot for some rain is Thursday and Friday primarily in southern Minnesota.
