Drought decreased in some areas but expanded in others

This week’s Drought Monitor shows that beneficial rain reduced drought in northern Florida and parts of southern Alabama, but that severe drought expanded in western North Carolina and southern Florida while it was whittled away in Alabama and Georgia. ┬áNext week’s map will probably show more reductions in drought due to the wet system that moved through on Wednesday (I got 4.24 inches in Athens GA!).
