Note: The recent data quality problems with the Palmer indices have been fixed, and the data since July 18 should be correct. At this time, the data and maps issued from June 13, 2009 to July 11, 2009 have not been corrected. We will post a notification when the data and maps are corrected.

Note: Palmer Drought Outlooks (formerly called Palmer Drought Projections) are now accessible via the "Outlook Maps and Graphs" page. Choose "Special Outlooks Products" link.

Also, the weekly Palmer Drought Index & Crop Moisture tables have now been changed to include the names of the divisions in each state.
