The latest Drought Monitor, released this morning, shows that the area of moderate drought (D1) in Alabama has contracted due to more rain in that state. But a small area of D1 was added to the far southwestern corner of Florida, and abnormally dry (D0) conditions expanded in both Florida and Georgia. Rain this week in Georgia may cut some of that expansion back but conditions are likely to get worse in Florida, where little to no rain is expected in the next week.
