Abnormally dry conditions expand slightly

The latest Drought Monitor shows that at this time there is no drought in the Southeast (not a big surprise after all our rain) but abnormally dry conditions in western Alabama and eastern Georgia have expanded. I expect the dry conditions in western Alabama to go away after Hurricane Delta moves onshore tomorrow and brings a swath of rain across LA, MS, and AL before moving to the northeast and weakening to a post-tropical depression. I am not looking forward to my drive from Ohio to Georgia on Sunday through all that rain!
