Drought conditions in the Mississippi Valley watershed have improved, thanks to some recent snow and rain.

The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority says the snow and rain over the last two weeks has "improved the recovery process" and water levels are trending toward normal historic conditions.

The MVCA is now calling their situation a "minor drought." The drought conditions in the watershed had been listed as severe as recently as December, 2016.
