Question

Is Colorado currently in a drought?

Answer

 This is an all too common question in Colorado and there is no straightforward answer. Drought is a prevalent natural phenomenon in Colorado. Single season droughts over some portion of the State are common. Prolonged periods of drought develop slowly over several years and are cyclical in nature. With Colorado’s semiarid and variable climate, there will always be a concern for water availability within the State.
