Slight decrease in drought this week

The latest Drought Monitor shows slight changes in drought across the region this week in response to the rains of last week. Alabama lost the most dry area, and should continue to see less dry area in next week’s map in response to the rains that are starting to hit the region today. Most of the rest of the Southeast will see less than half an inch of rain in the next week and could see the expansion of dry areas again in next week’s map.
