No relief for eastern Montana

Despite the state receiving precipitation in all regions, there was no relief for some eastern parts of the state. Windy conditions negated much of the moisture gained, according to the Mountain Regional Field Office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service, USDA.

Storms continued to slow fieldwork in western areas of the state, while in eastern Montana some operators began selling off livestock due to poor range conditions. Dry conditions continue to be a challenge in eastern Montana with Jordan at only 22 percent of normal precipitation since April 1; and the highest temperature of the week reported in Nashua at 86 degrees.

North-central areas of the state had the highest precipitation, with some areas receiving as much as 2.11 inches of moisture.
