Drought improvement in some areas

This morning’s Drought Monitor shows a reduction in drought in the panhandle of Florida as well as southern Georgia.  Dry conditions were removed from the Georgia coast as well due to plenty of rain.  However, extreme drought expanded in northwest South Carolina due to lack of rain there.  The latest Drought Outlook, also released today, shows that more improvement in drought conditions is likely in far northern areas of Georgia and Alabama but degradation may occur in Florida and southern Georgia due to the impacts of the current La Niña.
