Drought reduced from this week’s rain

The rain this past week, while not excessive, did manage to eliminate drought in Virginia and South Carolina and reduced it in Georgia and Alabama. Scattered small areas of moderate drought continue in those states and abnormally dry conditions are present in Florida and Puerto Rico as well as the states with drought. The next week should bring above-normal rainfall to most of the region, so further reductions are likely on next week’s map.
