A wet summer across the Southeast can only mean one thing – very little drought across the region.
That continues to be the case as evidence by the U.S. Drought Monitor. Persistent rains have provided sufficient moisture for Georgia and Alabama. Neither state is reporting any abnormally dry conditions.
The majority of Florida has sufficient moisture as well, except for a small part of Miami-Dade County in South Florida.
South Carolina has received its share of rainfall as well. Only a small portion of the northwest part of the state is abnormally dry. These include small parts of counties like Pickens, Greenville, Spartanburg, Cherokee, York and Lancaster.
A significant portion of western North Carolina is abnormally dry. A stretch as far west as Henderson County extending as far east as Alamance County and Person County, encompassing about 30 counties is abnormally dry.
