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 view, download, and compare moisture status maps between months and years beginning in 2002. New maps are published approximately the first half of each month. (During times of severe drought, maps are released more frequently. Supplemental drought status maps are available here.)

You can help! Let us know what moisture conditions are like in your area.

  • Submit a Drought Impact Report. Report on conditions in your area with this short questionnaire. Please submit reports any time of year, wet or dry. The questionnaire may be completed more than once to report impacts in another location or to report changing conditions.
  • View Maps of Drought Impacts. View maps and graphs of responses received through the Montana Drought Impacts Reporter.

View a Drought Status by County Map by choosing the month and year of interest from the dropdown box or by selecting from the thumbnails below. Asterisk (*) denotes missing map.
