    The latest Drought Monitor, which comes out every Thursday morning, shows some improvement across the state. The area of extreme drought has shrunk significantly, going from over 36 percent of the state to just over 8 percent in the latest update.  The bulk of improvement is across eastern Massachusetts in the counties of Essex, Middlesex and Worcester with little improvement in western Mass.
