Drought regains small area

Drought has reclaimed a tiny area of Arkansas, with areas of no drought declining from 6.52 percent last week to 6.44 percent this week. The most intense drought area (the dark red area on the map)  has stubbornly clung to existence, remaining at .63 percent of the state and including the same parts of  eastern Searcy, western Stone and a sliver of southern Baxter County. High winds earlier this week drawn by Sandy’s tremendous pull helped keep things dry,  and with only a slim chance for rain this weekend, dry areas could expand.
