Recent rain eliminates drought in the Southeast

The latest round of rain has eliminated all drought from the Southeast, although a few patches of abnormally dry conditions (D0) remain and a small area of D0 was introduced just northwest of Birmingham AL. The driest areas are expected to receive above-normal rain over the next week, so those dry areas may be eliminated on next week’s map. Meanwhile, in Puerto Rico, severe drought continues to cover the southern coast and an area near San Juan, and dry conditions cover all but the northwest quarter of the island, similar to what they had last week.
