Continued decrease in drought in most of the Southeast

Recent rains have continued to reduce drought coverage in most of the Southeast, with drought eliminated from South Carolina and nearly all gone from Georgia. Dry conditions are expanding in Virginia and in Alabama, especially in the northwest part of the state closest to the western drought that is affecting a lot of the middle of the country. The northern part of the region should see more rain this week associated with a cold front easing into the area, with lower rain amounts in the southern areas until late in the week. There were no changes in Puerto Rico this week.
