NE/NYS Drought Atlas (Beta)

Newsletters
We are pleased to present a working prototype of a Northeast "Drought Atlas," which is being developed with our climate smart farming (CSF) partners at the CICCS (http://climateinstitute.cals.cornell.edu/). The map below shows current conditions, as measured by the "Palmer Drought Severity Index." This map will be updated each month, and below you can find historical conditions going back to January of 1950. Scroll down further still to find time series from each county in NYS.
