(UNDATED) - Much of Indiana keeps drying out with little rainfall in recent weeks.

The U.S. Drought Monitor's weekly report released Thursday lists much of Indiana's midsection and parts of its northern counties as abnormally dry, which is the lowest drought condition. The report places 34 percent of the state in that category, along with 2 percent sliver in northwestern Indiana in moderate drought.

The National Weather Service has measured just 1.15 of an inch of rain since the start of August in Indianapolis, with only a slight chance of rain forecast for the coming days.

The current dry conditions aren't nearly as severe as a year ago when nearly two-thirds of the state was listed in severe to exceptional drought.
