Hartford, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - The state received a soaking rain in some parts today.
It remains to be seen if it will make a dent in the drought situation.
The latest report from the U.S. Drought Monitor does show some progress.
No parts of the state are currently experiencing severe drought, as was the case primarily in eastern Connecticut a few weeks ago.
The latest weekly update today shows portions of Litchfield, Fairfield, New Haven and Middlesex Counties still in a severe drought.
Portions of Hartford, Tolland, and Windham, along with most of New London County are in a moderate drought.
