Drought conditions that began to increase in December continue to impact the state, with nearly one-third of Colorado in the extreme or exceptional categories.

Since March, the United States Department of Agriculture and the US Small Business Administration have issued primary disaster designations for 24 of Colorado's 66 counties due to drought impacts (one additional county was designated by the SBA only), with another 18 counties eligible for assistance since they share a border with at least one primary county.
