Maine's Drought Task Force says conditions continue to worsen with much of the state experiencing moderate to severe drought, although northern Aroostook County has seen a slight improvement with some localized rain.  

Tom Hawley of the National Weather Service said, "Conditions may worsen over the next seven days statewide due to below normal rainfall and a continued trend of above normal temperatures."  

The USDA Farm Service Agency reported a continued impact to most crops across the state, including potatoes, blueberries and cover crops and noted irrigation issues, especially in Aroostook County.
