The latest Drought Monitor, released today, shows that most abnormally dry conditions have been removed from the Southeast. On the latest map, there is only a small area of abnormally dry conditions near Birmingham AL and a small area of moderate drought in the Delmarva Peninsula in Virginia with surrounding abnormally dry conditions. Dry conditions in some areas over the last 30 days are so far not showing up on the Drought Monitor. Drought in Puerto Rico expanded and strengthened in the last week.
