The Palmer Drought Severity Index, proba-bly the single most commonly cited measure of drought conditions, is currently near zero (i.e., normal conditions) across most of New Mexico. However, the Palmer Index is based entirely on local weather history.

It was developed by meteorologist Wayne Palmer, who first published his method in the paper Meteorological Drought for the Office of Climatology of the U.S. Weather Bureau. Based on the Palmer Drought Index, severe to extreme drought affected about 4 percent of the contiguous United States as of the end of Julyan increase of about 3 percent from last month.

About 9 percent of the contiguous U.S. fell in the severely to extremely wet categories.; About 9 percent of the contiguous U.S.

fell in the moderate to extreme drought categories (based on the. Monthly maps of drought conditions in the contiguous U.S.

as measured by the Palmer Drought Severity Index, Palmer Hydrological Drought Index, Palmer Modified Drought Index, and Palmer Z-Index (Palmer, ) are provided for January —January Animations of any set of monthly maps for any period desired can be viewed by selecting the.

The operational Palmer Drought Index (PDI) attempts to measure the duration and intensity of the long-term drought-inducing circulation patterns. Long-term drought is cumulative, so the intensity of drought during the current month is dependent on the current weather patterns plus the cumulative patterns of previous months.

The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) uses readily available temperature and precipitation data to estimate relative dryness. It is a standardized index that generally spans (dry) to +10 (wet).

Maps of operational agencies like NOAA typically show a range of -4 to +4, but more extreme values are possible. DROUGHT INDICES – SPI • Different time scales reflect the impact of drought on the availability of the different water resources • Mckee et al.

()* define a criteria for a drought event for any of the time scales • Drought event occurs any time the SPI is continuously negative and reaches an intensity of File Size: 2MB.

The Palmer Drought Index (PDI) and Palmer Hydrological Drought Index (PHDI) shown on this web page represent a way of estimating the monthly PDI and PHDI on an operational weekly basis. If the date of the maps is before the end of the month, then observed temperature and precipitation through the date of the map are combined with HOME > Monitoring and Data > U.S.

Climate Data > Drought Monitoring > Current Indices: Note: The recent data quality problems with the Palmer indices have been fixed, and the data since July 18 should be correct.

At this time, the data and maps issued from J to J have not been corrected. We will post a notification when the data and maps are corrected. Streamflow drought time series forecasting [17,18], time series analysis The Southern Oscillation indices and historical Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) series were selected as Author: Reza Modarres.

Palmer Drought Severity Index is a measure of dryness where negative values represent drought and positive values reflect excess rain. Palmer Z-Index. Time Series Box. Function: generate a time series of select variables from through the most recent complete month.

The equation for the index was empirically derived from the monthly temperature and precipitation scenarios of 13 instances of extreme drought in western Kansas and central Iowa and by assigning an index value of -4 for these cases.

Conversely, a +4 represents extremely wet conditions. The index is able to identify the major drought events during the latter part of the twentieth century and shows good agreement with the time series of U.S.

Soil moisture data is calibrated to a homogeneous climate zone. PDSI has been widely used to recognize long-term agricultural drought and hydrological drought, and to identify the abnormality of a particular drought in a region.

Short-term droughts are calculated by the Palmer Z. A method for weekly monitoring of the Palmer Drought Index (PDI) by using four parallel month-long calculation chains in rotation (“ROLLING” method) was tested for the Kansas Northwest Climate Division and the South Carolina Southern Climate Division and compared to two other methods, a modified version of the Climate Prediction Center’s weekly Palmer Drought Index monitoring method Cited by: The Palmer Index is most effective in determining long term drought—a matter of several months—and is not as good with short-term forecasts (a matter of weeks).

It uses a 0 as normal, and drought is shown in terms of minus numbers; for example, minus 2 is moderate drought, minus 3 is severe drought, and minus 4 is extreme drought.b.) Statistical indices based on time series analysis.
