Current Drought Conditions in Virginia

The map below displays the current status of drought indicators for each of the thirteen Drought Evaluation Regions in Virginia.  The squares within each region indicate the current stage of each of the drought indicators as described by the key below.  The color shown for each Drought Evaluation Region indicates the current stage for that region.  For example, regions colored green indicate normal conditions with no current drought advisory.  If a region is colored yellow, a Drought Watch Advisory is currently in effect for that region.
