One-category degradations were made in both east-central and far southern Florida.
Rainfall deficits of 8-12 inches over the past 180-days are prevalent across Florida, along with Keetch Byram Drought Index (KBDI) values in excess of 550-600 (700 in west-central parts of Florida).
An exception to the widespread dryness was an area of moderate to heavy showers and storms (1.5-2.0 inches) along the southeast coast of Florida during the period.
