How long will the drought hang on?

Some 80 percent of the United States had some kind of drought in 2012.  Producers all over the country are looking for a change of fortune in 2013 – but will they get the improved conditions they’re hoping for?

Senior agriculture meteorologist Bryce Anderson cautions that drought conditions can hang on for as long as one and a half years, since it takes so long after a drought for rainfall to catch up to average.  His forecast includes continued dry and warm conditions throughout the fall season, with very few areas of the United States expected to have any above-normal precipitation.  Anderson warns that it’s possible for the hardest-hit drought areas to finish out 2012 in a continued drought state.
