Monsoon season not expected to end drought in US Southwest

Weather forecasters say the region should begin receiving monsoonal moisture during the first half of July, later than normal.  Sparse rainfall in the U.S. Southern Plains since autumn has caused drought conditions to worsen, especially in the Four Corners region of Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. The U.S. Drought Monitor says moderate to extreme drought also persists in parts of Oklahoma and Texas. (File photo)
