Abnormally dry areas reduced by half

None of the Southeast is currently in drought due to the wet conditions we have experienced for a lot of the past few months. There are still a few patches of abnormally dry (D0) conditions in Alabama, Georgia, and extreme southern South Carolina. The areas of D0 in AL and GA were cut in half by recent tropical rain, and the area of D0 in SC was almost completely eliminated except for a small strip along the southeast coast. With fairly rainy conditions expected this week due to the remains of Beta, I don’t see any expansion on next week’s map, and further reductions could occur.
