Hot and dry conditions across the Southeast in July 2016

Virtually all of the Southeast was warmer and drier than normal in July 2016, according to maps from the High Plains Regional Climate Center.  The precipitation deficit is even more striking when you look at the percentage of normal and see that large chunks of the region got less than 50% of their normal rainfall.  When combined with the above normal temperatures, it is no surprise that drought has been expanding across the area.
