Click here for all the inside skinny and to register:

This webinar will cover two new drought tools available to the public and provide a short update on drought conditions and the outlook. The tools in include Grasscast, which informs those interested and range and pasture lands on possible future conditions for that crop. The other tool we will be discussing is from NASA and maybe used in the U.S. as well as around the globe for soil moisture and groundwater monitoring and prediction. At the end of the webinar we will briefly discuss current conditions and the drought outlook in the North-Central U.S.

NOAA’s 3-month precipitation outlook for May-Jun-Jul is leaning slightly (33-50% chances) towards above-normal for southern ND, all of SD, NE, and KS, much of OK, as well as northeastern CO, eastern WY, and southeastern MT. So the left map might be slightly more likely for these states. For all other areas, the outlook currently shows equal chances, so the three maps above are equally likely.
