DES MOINES, Iowa – Parts of Iowa have gone from flooding to drought conditions in just a matter of months.

According to the latest Drought Monitor report released Thursday morning, much of northeast Iowa is now at the lowest level of drought.

An area of “abnormally dry conditions” exists in an area from south-central Minnesota through northeast Iowa, extending into northern Illinois. Another area of dry conditions is reported in southwest Iowa.

The WHO-HD Weather Team said that rain in the next few days could help alleviate some of the dry conditions.
