Drought Recedes But Dryness Continues Across Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa enters the cold weather season with about a fifth of the state still in severe drought.
   The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says November was drier than normal with the average precipitation for the state at 1.6 inches compared with the 30-year normal of just over 2 inches.
   A small area of the state that was rated in extreme drought in October has improved and is now in severe drought.
   The area of the state in severe drought has fallen to 20 percent from 35 percent at the start of November.
   Little change is anticipated in soil moisture levels over the winter as soils are likely be frozen statewide by now, and are unlikely to thaw until spring.
