Drought Monitor: Precipitation Levels Vary in the Extreme
USAgNet - 03/19/2021

The week ending March 16 was a study in contrasts in terms of precipitation, according to the latest Drought Monitor report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

On the one hand, a vigorous and slow-moving area of mid-level low pressure dropped several inches of snow/rain from the Four Corners region to the Central Great Plains from March 13 to 15. On the other, below-normal precipitation was observed during the seven-day period throughout much of the Pacific Northwest and along the East Coast.

Widespread precipitation (rain and snow totaling 2 to 6 inches, liquid equivalent) fell across the Central Rockies, Central Great Plains, and Lower Missouri River Basin.

Snowfall amounts ranged from 2 to 4 feet from Colorado north to Wyoming, but across North Dakota, dry weather continued.

As a low pressure system tracked eastward, rainfall (locally more than 2 inches) overspread the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys along with parts of the Southeast on March 14 and 15.
