Slight Increase in Abnormally Dry Conditions Likely to Change After Sally

By Pam Knox
The latest Drought Monitor, released this morning, covers conditions through this past Tuesday, before Sally came onshore. It shows no drought in the region but some pockets of abnormally dry conditions scattered around the region. They contracted slightly in Georgia and expanded slightly in South Carolina. With the passage of Sally over parts of the dry area in the past few days, it is likely that some of those pockets will be removed from next week’s map, although not everywhere got a lot of rain. Clearly, we don’t expect drought to come back any time soon!
