Climate and Agriculture in the Southeast

Most areas of the Southeast fairly close to normal in July 2018 so far

We’re halfway through July, so let’s take a look at our current climate situation. Temperatures in the Southeast have been variable but in most cases fairly close to normal, especially when you compare it to our friends up north, who have experienced much warmer temperatures. At least in part this is due to precipitation and clouds in the region, which have kept down daytime temperatures, although nighttime temperatures have been fairly warm due to the high humidity. In rainfall, Georgia has been the wettest of the Southeastern states, with drier conditions elsewhere and especially in the Carolinas and Virginia where abnormally dry conditions are growing. Rain is expected to continue for at least the next week, so no big changes in the pattern are expected on the short term.
