The Minnesota DNR’s drought map for Thursday shows extreme drought conditions affecting Lincoln, Lyon, and Redwood Counties.

According to Thursday’s drought report in Minnesota, the Department of Natural Resources has declared parts of the KLGR listening area are now in extreme drought conditions. Redwood, Lyon, and Lincoln Counties would now require at least five to eight inches of rain over the next several weeks to replenish water resources.
As of Thursday, 43% of Minnesota is experiencing abnormally dry conditions, unchanged from last week.
The past two weeks are the first time this year that any portion of Minnesota has been in extreme drought. In comparison, last year’s drought was the most severe in Minnesota since at least 1988, with more than half the state experiencing extreme drought.
By mid-October, both water use and temperatures typically have declined sharply from summer levels. So while seasonal water use changes may temporarily reduce any need for more restrictive actions, the DNR encourages all Minnesotans to conserve water.
