Record rainfall greatly improves drought conditions in the south | Ag news

Record rainfall led to aggressive improvements in drought conditions in parts of the South. The heavy rains and flooding caused communications outages at the National Weather Service office, leaving climatologists without access to critical data and tools needed to fully analyze the impact of this event.

Due to the scale of this event, improvements had to be prioritized on this week’s map in those areas and the southwest where the monsoon season remains active. The extended drought in the northwest was warm, with dryness continuing throughout the region. The Midwest, Southeast, and Northeast saw a mix of improvements and deteriorations.
