Drought a problem in southern Wisconsin

Dry weather continues to be an issue in parts of Wisconsin.

The USDA says long-term drought is having an impact on southern portions of the state, with little relief from the mid-month storms.

Those storms did cause some damage to fences, buildings, and irrigation equipment.

Warmer than normal temperatures have limited ice damage to alfalfa and winter wheat, but some areas need more snow cover.

The USDA’s next state update is out later this month.
