Small increase in dry conditions this week

The latest Drought Monitor was released today and it shows that there were slight increases overall in abnormally dry conditions this week. The one area of D1 drought in northeast VA expanded slightly, and areas of abnormally dry conditions (D0) were introduced to a small area west of Atlanta in GA and expanded in VA but shrunk in Alabama. I expect those areas to grow in next week’s map with little rain and high temperatures this week.
