Montana Looks Towards a Drought-Free Summer – Precipitation Needs to Continue Through May and June

Just a few months ago, parts of western Montana were still in near-drought conditions that had continued from the extremely dry summer.

According to National Weather Service Meteorologist Luke Robinson, February radically changed the drought picture.

“The last three months, we have improved,” Robinson said. “As of right now, there isn’t any places in Montana that has any sort of drought classification. That has improved in the last three months where we were abnormally dry.”

It now seems possible for the state to stay drought-free through summer.

“In the coming months into the summer, it really depends on how much moisture, rain, and snow that we get in May and in June,” Robinson said. “That will really give us an indication as to how the summer going to be. May and June is our wettest portions of the year, so it really depends on what happens then, but right now, we’re looking pretty good.”

Warm weather over the past week unleashed large amounts of water from record snowfalls, pushing many streams and rivers over their banks.

Last summer, nearly all of southeastern Montana suffered either severe or extreme drought conditions.
