Drought conditions in Missouri as of July 6th, 2021. (The U.S. Drought Monitor is jointly produced by the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the United States Department of Agriculture, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

A majority of Scott County and the southern fourth of Cape Girardeau County have now entered pre-drought conditions. That’s the only change in this week’s USDA Drought Monitor, which now has 5.8 percent of Missouri under abnormally dry conditions. No changes occurred to either of the patches that appeared on last week’s update, and no portion of the state has re-entered moderate drought.
