Much of Southeast cooler and drier than normal in June 2020, but wetter and warmer than usual for the year so far

For most of the Southeast, June 2020 turned out to be cooler and drier than normal, although there were some notable exceptions due to Tropical Storm Cristobal in the first week. In spite of the drier than normal conditions, many producers are complaining about moisture-related diseases affecting their crops this year, which may be due to the cooler temperatures and higher humidity or rain earlier in the year.

For the first half of the year, the entire region is warmer than normal, and most of it is wetter than normal. The exception is drier than normal conditions in Florida and the southern borders of Alabama and Georgia, where drought has been occurring for much of the year but which is mostly gone at this point.
