Drought Expected To Worsen Next Year
Posted: 31 December, 2012
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraskans should expect the impact of the drought to worsen next year if the current dry forecast for the winter holds up.
Climatologists at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s National Drought Mitigation Center say the effects of the drought will likely be worse next year because the state’s rivers and lakes are already diminished. Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming are all on track to record their driest years on record in 2012.
