U.S. Drought Monitor map released Thursday, May 2.

Drought continues to recede in Arkansas as the moderate drought designation drops completely from counties north of the Arkansas River. Spots of moderate drought are stubbornly clinging to areas in the southwestern part of the state.

The good news, according to the Climate Prediction Center, is that SW Arkansas is projected to see much improvement through the end of July. See today’s outlook at:

Meanwhile, some folks in northwest Arkansas will be scanning the May skies for snowflakes.
