U.S. Drought Monitor map
This Aug. 16 map by the U.S. Drought Monitor shows severe drought conditions continuing in Southwest Washington. Moderate drought conditions extend across the northern part of the state and across Western Washington. The remainder of the state is abnormally dry.
We use this map and others to help track the state's water supply. This map is updated weekly and we'll share it here. Currently, every western state is experiencing some level of drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.
