Northeast Drought Summary
Generally dry conditions in northern portions of the region contrasted with locally heavy rain farther south. Short-term dryness has begun to develop over southern portions of Vermont and New Hampshire, with some locales reporting locally less than 50 percent-of-normal rainfall over the past 60 days. If rain does not materialize soon, these areas will be primed to slip into D0 (Abnormal Dryness). Across the southern third of the region, an increasingly active weather pattern brought a large area of moderate to heavy rainfall (1-3 inches, locally more), easing lingering D0 across central and southern Maryland.
