MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's drought conditions eased up a little bit during the past week. 

The U.S. Drought Monitor said 49.66 percent of the state's land area was abnormally dry or worse this week. That's down by almost four full percentage points from the week before. 

Also, officials say the Mauston-Sparta-Tomah region is no longer in a severe drought. That leaves a stretch from Ellsworth to Fairchild as the only part of the Badger State that's severely dry. 

A larger part of central Wisconsin is now drought free, but the official drought territory still covers about the southwest half of Wisconsin. 

Rain and thunderstorms are expected Saturday in the southern part of the state.  After that, colder and drier weather is due in for much of next week.
