U.S. Drought Monitor: Unusual Wintery Conditions Bring No Respite
USAgNet - 09/11/2020

Dramatically colder weather and snow suddenly replaced hot and dry conditions across the Rockies and Plains Tuesday, according to the USDA's Sept. 10 Drought Monitor report.

Several places ranging from the central Rockies to the northern Plains saw temperatures plunge from about 90 degrees F on Labor Day to near freezing with light snow the next morning.

Apparently setting a national all-time record was East Rapid City, SD, which went from 102 degrees F to reporting measurable snow in a span of two days.

Given the heat and wind that preceded it, the cold snap offered little or no relief to drought-stricken areas.

Elsewhere, significant showers fell across interior northeastern Texas, in a swath from eastern Iowa to central Illinois, across Ohio, and in parts of Arkansas.
