CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The latest report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows southeast Wyoming may be emerging from 11 months of drought.

The USDA's weekly Drought Monitor out Thursday shows the Cheyenne area has been downgraded from "moderate drought" to "abnormally dry."

Abnormally dry means an area may be trending toward drought or may be emerging from drought.

The USDA has classified parts of Laramie County as exceptionally dry over the past year.
