Southeast Drought Summary

Almost all of Florida received half an inch or more of rain this week, with parts of the Peninsula getting 2 inches or more. But the rest of the Southeast region got little to no precipitation. The last 30 days have been quite dry along the coast from southeast Virginia to South Carolina. D0 expanded in eastern North Carolina where streamflow and soil moisture are below normal and 30- to 60-day precipitation deficits have been the greatest.
