The latest update Thursday from the U.S. Drought Monitor says 28 percent of the state is now abnormally dry, up from 11 percent a week ago. The abnormally dry area stretches from a line from Ortonville on the western border through St. Cloud and further east to the Wisconsin border and areas to the south of that line down to Interstate 90. All of Stearns and Sherburne counties are in the area.

The moderate drought area has grown from three percent last week to seven percent this week.

And one percent of the state - the southern Twin Cities metro - is now in a severe drought.
