Southeast Drought Summary

Most of the region recorded above-normal precipitation for the week, with only areas of northern Florida, western North Carolina, and portions of central and southern Georgia below normal. Temperatures this week were near normal to slightly below in the western areas of the region. Where the greatest rains fell along the coastal region of the Carolinas, improvements were made to severe and moderate drought, and the amount of abnormal dryness was reduced. Southern Georgia into northern Florida remained dry with a large expansion of abnormally dry conditions based on the short-term indicators. Central Florida had some rain, which allowed for some improvements to the abnormally dry conditions there. Rain in Tennessee alleviated abnormally dry conditions in the central area and portions of the eastern parts of the state.
