This figure appears in chapter 36 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

Time series of the Palmer Drought Severity Index from the year 1000 to 2013. Values for 1895–2013 (red) are based on measured temperature and precipitation. Values prior to 1895 (blue) are estimated from indirect measures such as tree rings. The thick solid line is a running 20-year average. In the modern era, the wet periods of the 1980s and 1990s and the dry periods of the 1930s and 1950s are evident. The extended record indicates periodic occurrences of similar extended wet and dry periods. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
