Reduction in severe drought in FL but slight expansion of dry conditions in AL and GA

The latest Drought Monitor, released this morning, shows that the severe drought in Florida has been reduced but two areas still remain in southwest FL and a small patch in the Panhandle. Alabama had very slight increases in drought, and abnormally dry conditions stretched north into the area along the southern border of Georgia. Relatively light rain amounts in the next week could lead to more expansion on next week’s map. Meanwhile moderate drought was introduced to south central Puerto Rico this week after several weeks of abnormally dry conditions.
