UNDATED (WSAU)   The U.S. Drought Monitor reports the recent rain and snow seen over much of Wisconsin has ended the state’s drought.

The latest weekly update indicates less than 13 percent of Wisconsin is in drought, although 14 percent is rated abnormally dry. More than 60 percent was in drought as this year started.

It’s not all good. The heavy rainfall has been delaying the start of planting for some farmers. Farmland in southern Wisconsin is covered by several feet of water in some locations. That area has received about 10 inches of rain over the past two weeks.
