WINTRY WEATHER SLIGHTLY PULLS EASTERN NM OUT OF DROUGHT
NEW MEXICO (KOB) – Much of New Mexico has seen wintry weather the past few weeks, which may lead portions of the state, including Eastern New Mexico, to climb out of the drought. Although the good news for our portion of the state, much of the north-central and northwestern portions of New Mexico still remain in drought conditions; KOB-TV reports. The lack of snow-pack last winter put the state into exceptional drought, which is still lingering in the majority of the state. Weather experts say a large, warmer type of subtropical storm would be needed to move the state away from drought status.
