Still reeling from devastating drought that led to at least $10 billion in agricultural losses across Texas and the South in 2011, the nation is enduring more unusually parched weather.

A mostly dry, mild winter has put nearly 61% of the lower 48 states in "abnormally dry" or drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a weekly federal tracking of drought. That's the highest percentage of dry or drought conditions since September 2007, when 61.5% of the country was listed in those categories.

Only two states — Ohio and Alaska — are entirely free of abnormally dry or drought conditions, according to the Drought Monitor.

The drought is expanding into some areas where dryness is rare, such as New England.

"Conditions are starting to worry us now," said Keith Eggleston , a climatologist with the Northeast Regional Climate Center in Ithaca, N.Y.

Feb. 22, 2012 (Argentina)

Argentina’s drought began last fall but deepened in January, when record temperatures were set. Though a bit of rain arrived earlier this month, it was too late for most of the corn crop, prompting forecasters to cut production estimates from over 30 million metric tons to 22 million metric tons. Last year, Argentina produced 26 million metric tons.
