Southeast Drought Summary

The trend toward improvements continued this week in the Southeast in response to another round of beneficial rain and below-normal temperatures. The combination helped to lessen rainfall deficits, replenish soil moisture, and increase streamflow. In response, one-category improvements were made in areas of severe drought (D2), moderate drought (D1), and abnormal dryness (D0) in South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. While the Florida Panhandle benefited from the rain and saw improvements, south and central Florida did not. Continued above-normal temperatures and rainfall shortages (3 to 10 inches over the last 90 days) led to the introduction of abnormal dryness (D0).
