New drought added to the Carolinas, dry conditions removed from AL, GA

The latest Drought Monitor, released today, shows that a new area of moderate (D1) drought was introduced to parts of South and North Carolina this week. They have been missed by most of the recent rains that wiped out the dry conditions in Alabama and Georgia. The drought in South Florida expanded very slightly but is not expected to stay around long as they are entering their rainy season soon. Virginia also saw the introduction of abnormally dry (D0) conditions into the south central part of the state.
