Intermountain West Drought Early Warning System -
In support of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), our office regularly monitors drought and climate conditions in the Intermountain West (CO, WY, UT, AZ, NM). Our monitoring efforts include a weekly summary and assessment of conditions and a recommendation to the U.S. Drought Monitor.
