The latest Drought Monitor, released earlier this week, shows that there have been improvements across the region. While a lot of the region is already out of drought due to earlier rain events, this past week additional rain has improved conditions in eastern NC, SC, and northern AL, and in Puerto Rico, too. This weekend we will be getting more rain and it is likely that the remnant drought areas will improve again in next week’s map. After a few cooler days the temperatures will start increasing again too, which will increase evaporation, which could cause minor drying of the surface.
