The Wyoming Condition Monitoring Team (WCMT) is a collaborative effort of state, tribal, and federal partners that formed in June 2020 in response to an emerging drought. The WCMT corresponds weekly to draft and submit recommendations to the U.S. Drought Monitor on behalf of Wyoming, started offering a monthly webinar for public servants in March 2021-- which is recorded and posted for the public viewing, and manages this Drought Information & Resources website for the people of Wyoming.

Vision Statement:

Ensure that conditions (too wet, near normal, too dry) throughout the state of Wyoming, and associated impacts to all sectors, are accurately captured & communicated to the appropriate authorities/outlets, year-round*. Create an efficient and sustainable condition-reporting network that gathers/encourages input from those who work in the field.

*Such as the Wyoming Governor’s Office; Wyoming Homeland Security; the U.S. Drought Monitor; Condition Monitoring Observer Reports on Drought
