Drought

January 13, 2013
Snow-covered farm fields are shown Thursday south of Willmar. It would take a lot of snow to make up for the lack of moisture in 2012, but a prominent meteorologist speaking this week in North Dakota says the Northern Plains likely will see more rain this spring and early summer than it did in the same period last year.
