The impacted area stretches from La Grande to Nevada and California boarders. In addition, 76% of Oregon is considered abnormally dry for this time of year. Meanwhile, Washington’s figures have not changed.
Just over 8% of the state is considered abnormally dry, in a stretch running from the southern Cascades to just south of Ellensburg.
