Every week we get an update on the drought conditions in Maryland. It is no surprise, given the lack of rainfall here, that we have seen drought conditions get a bit worse in the state.

The latest update posted above shows moderate drought (brown) spreading from the Baltimore metro through the eastern shore and farther south.

Currently, about 83.5% of the state is seeing at least dry conditions or worse. That is up from 66% last week.

About 36.5% of the state is seeing moderate drought. That is up from about 20% last week.

The good news is we have some rain chances. There are showers in the forecast Friday evening and a better chance at rain next Monday. We will certainly need more, but it is a start.
