California’s extreme drought conditions have progressed rapidly since 2011, when maps based on reports from the U.S. Drought Monitor showed that just a small part of the northern part of the state was considered “abnormally dry.”

According to Thursday’s edition of The Los Angeles Times, drought conditions spread statewide when rainfall became more sporadic.

The first maps of the state show just spots of yellow, indicating the abnormally dry conditions. And then, as time moves along into 2012, the map rapidly changes, with most of the state being colored yellow.
