Several agencies in the US are facilitating the use of drought early warning information through interactions with agricultural stakeholders. The National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) has defined goal of creating a drought early warning system that provides probabilistic forecasts with sufficient spatial and temporal resolutions for users to make informed management decisions. Early warning systems could be significantly enhanced by integrating new datasets that provide information over subseasonal time scales with frequent update cycles, which are necessary for early detec?tion of rapidly evolving flash drought events.
