Another Thursday, another Drought Monitor. Thanks to the DM authors who make this happen every week with no pay for doing it! This week’s map shows that abnormally dry conditions (D0) have returned to the southern edge of Georgia and have expanded in southern Alabama and in Florida. The small area of severe (D2) drought in the Florida Panhandle increased slightly. Other areas of the Southeast, including Puerto Rico, show no dry conditions this week. The wet North/dry South pattern is expected to continue for the next week, so some further increase in drought conditions is likely in the areas that are already dry.
