Governor's report on drought and flooding potential released

"The Governor’s Report on the Potential for Drought and Flooding in Montana 2014" provides projections of what can be expected for surface water supplies in terms of reservoir storage, stream flow, soil moisture, agricultural production and climatic conditions. At this time, the Montana Governor’s Drought and Water Supply Advisory Committee rates the potential for drought-like conditions through the month of July2014 as low for surface water dependent uses east and west of the Continental Divide. East of the Divide there is a low to moderate chance that dry land farming could be impacted if average precipitation is not received at valley and plains elevations over the course of June, July, and August.
