The rain we have had in the past week has contributed to contraction or removal of abnormally dry conditions in several states this week. However, the rain did not make it into southern Florida, so abnormally dry (D0) and moderate drought (D1) expanded there. There are no dry conditions at all in Georgia, South Carolina, and Puerto Rico. There is also a smidge of moderate drought in eastern Tennessee. More rain is expected in the next week in most areas except southern Florida, so the difference between Florida and the rest of the Southeast is likely to continue.
