Montana County Drought Status Maps

In coordination with the Montana Governor’s Drought and Water Supply Advisory Committee, the Montana State Library publishes monthly maps of moisture status by county. This webpage allows users to easily download, view, and compare moisture status maps between months and years beginning in 2002. New maps are published approximately the first half of each month.

Due to the severity and expanse of the current drought, the Drought Monitoring Subcommittee is releasing maps every few weeks rather than monthly. The most recent map is shown by default. Access older maps through the links and thumbnails below:
