The latest Drought Monitor, released last week, shows that drought improved along the spine of the Southern Appalachians with the rain we got. However, abnormally dry conditions (D0) expanded in central Georgia and Alabama, which were largely missed by the last rain. In Puerto Rico there was no change in drought but abnormally dry conditions also expanded there. We are moving into a period of more active storminess over the next couple of weeks, so I expect to see some additional reduction in drought as those storms move through, depending on where their paths go.
