A weekly drought monitor showing conditions Sept. 4.

— Drought conditions are improving in Arkansas, thanks to last week’s downpour of rain from the remnants of Hurricane Isaac.

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map released Thursday shows that 12 percent of Arkansas is in exceptional drought. That’s down from 45 percent a week ago. Almost half the state is still in extreme drought.

The map shows that the worst conditions are in northern Arkansas counties, while the drought is beginning to recede in southern and eastern Arkansas.

The National Weather Service says Isaac dropped more than 10 inches of rain in places as it moved through Arkansas last week.
