Hazards Assessment Briefing: The National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center offers 3-7 and 8-14 day outlook maps that do not appear to be offered on The Drought Monitor site because they include other potential threats like flooding, high temperatures, wildfires and more. However, these are great overview products for all weather related threats. Avoid the Drought/Wildfire links in the left side bar because most will just send you to dead pages, or over to The Drought Monitor page listed above.
Drought Monitoring: Another service of the National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center, find here the source documents for most of the map products found at the sites above.
State/Regional/National Moisture Status: Part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's,National Climatic Data Center "State of the Climate" website which provides a variety of ways to review soil moisture numbers.
Drought Information Center: Enticing name for a dead page of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. However, some links to archives and to pages now integrated into the sites listed above still work.
Comments: Right now it's tough out there in the farming communities of America's heartland. One can only hope rain is on its way soon.
