Climate and Agriculture in the Southeast

Severe drought now in Alabama but reductions in Georgia and South Carolina

The latest Drought Monitor, released this morning, shows that the rain received in parts of the Southeast this past week has resulted in a decrease in drought and dry conditions in South Carolina and Georgia. However, areas that were missed by the rain continue in drought. An area of severe (D2) drought was added to southeast Alabama this week. With seasonal rains expected in the next week, I don’t see any big changes coming to next week’s map.
