Report shows healthy precip in most of Wyo

CHEYENNE, wyo – Good news for farmers and ranchers: Most
of Wyoming has seen abundant precipitation over the past few
months.
That's according to the latest state hydrologic summary from the
U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Only watersheds in north-central Wyoming have had below-average
precipitation since October. In December, precipitation was normal
to well-above normal for every part of the state except the Tongue
River drainage around Sheridan.
The report shows moderate drought persisting in the upper Green
River Basin and in the far southeast corner of Wyoming.
