Only slight changes to drought this week

The latest Drought Monitor, released this morning, shows only small changes to the drought across the Southeast this week. The biggest change is a slight expansion of severe drought in Alabama, while the D2 drought is almost entirely gone from Georgia now. Most of the region will be fairly dry in the next week except in Florida where a stalled front is dropping a lot of rain, but cooler temperatures should reduce the evapotranspiration from plants, although that should be somewhat countered by lower humidity values.
