D0 removed from NC, GA; reduced in FL and AL

The latest Drought Monitor, released earlier this week, shows that the recent rains have removed the abnormally dry conditions (D0) that were western North Carolina and in Georgia and have reduced them in Florida. Moderate drought (D1) and abnormally dry conditions also shrunk in Alabama. With this week’s rain, I expect to see more decrease in next week’s map. Meanwhile, drought in Puerto Rico is expanding along the northwestern coast.
