MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin lost tons of snow this week -- but not much of it seeped into the ground, because of the heavy frost that's still below the surface.
The U.S. Drought Monitor said just over 35 percent of the state's land area is abnormally dry or worse. That's only a tenth of a point less than a week ago.
Most of the southwest third of Wisconsin is abnormally dry, just like it's been since last fall.
Moderate drought conditions continue in the Mauston and Adams region -- and another patch between Eau Claire and Hudson.
Only five percent of the state's land area became drought free since the start of 2014.
