Drought Easing Locally, now just Abnormally Dry

The latest drought information posted by the National Weather Service in Riverton indicates a small portion of SE Fremont County is now out of drought, with the rest of the county, plus Hot Springs and Washakie counties, are “abnormally dry.” The drought condition outlook for August would indicate moisture is likely to put a dent in drought conditions.
