Northeast Drought Summary
Temperatures were normal to above normal in New England with widespread precipitation over most of the region except for central Pennsylvania and western New York. Maine recorded the most precipitation, with amounts up to 2 inches in northeastern portions of the state. With the mix of rain falling on top of snow and frozen soils, the impact of the precipitation is hard to assess, but there was some response to streamflow conditions. No changes to the drought status were made this week and several reports indicated that without more precipitation in the region, conditions will worsen.
