Study: Drought-breaking rains more rare, erratic in Colorado and the West

The consequences of the intense dry periods that pummeled the Rocky Mountains and the Colorado Plateau were severe — more intense and dangerous wildfires, parched croplands and not enough vegetation to support livestock and wildlife. And it's getting worse.

Environment

One-third of Colorado is now in a severe drought, mostly in the south

58 out of 64 counties are experiencing drier than normal conditions and that could mean wildfire trouble and result in crop losses
