Climate and Agriculture in the Southeast

Top ten wettest May 3 through August 3 for much of the Southeast

According to calculations provided by the Southeast Regional Climate Center on their Perspectives tool, the last May 3 through August 3 (three months) has been in the top ten wettest in many parts of the Southeast. In Virginia and at a few scattered locations elsewhere it has been the wettest on record. The only places that are not in the top ten are most of Alabama (where abnormally dry conditions were just reintroduced) and central North and South Carolina, where the Drought Monitor is also indicating abnormally dry conditions.  You can make your own maps at http://www.sercc.com/perspectives.
