The latest Drought Monitor, released earlier today, shows that nearly all drought has been removed from the Southeast. There is still a small area of moderate (D1) drought near Tampa, but only a few patches of abnormally dry (D0) conditions remain over most of the area due to the recent rain. Drought was also reduced in Puerto Rico this week due to more rain across the island this past week. Rain over the next week will be mainly focused on the Florida peninsula, which may reduce or eliminate the remaining drought near Tampa.
