Drought increases slightly across the Southeast

The latest issue of the National Drought Monitor was released this morning.  It shows that abnormally dry conditions and drought expanded slightly across the Southeast, especially in Florida, Alabama and Georgia.  An area of moderate drought was reintroduced to southwestern Georgia and an area of severe drought was added to southeast Alabama.  You can get updates on the conditions weekly at http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Home/RegionalDroughtMonitor.aspx?southeast.  If you click on the map, you can get statistics for individual states.
