The latest Drought Monitor, released today, shows an increase in moderate drought in central and southern Florida this week due to continued lack of rain and very hot temperatures. Dry conditions also expanded in central Alabama. In North Carolina and Virginia, dry conditions improved but were not quite eliminated this week. Puerto Rico continues to be free of dry conditions. This pattern of changes is likely to continue in next week’s map since northern areas will see more rain and Florida will experience very little.
