Rainy Season Improves Drought Conditions

Much improvement was made to the depiction from northwest to Northeast Florida due to beneficial rains this week which followed the Gulf Coast deluge from last week. Rainfall surpluses for the last 90+ days resulted in generally a 1-category improvement of the D0-D2 (severe drought) across this area.

With Tropical Storm Debbie moving very slowing and dumping heavy amount of rain to our region this will only help to improve conditions even more.

Flooding in low lying areas could be a problem for row crops recently planted in the Panhandle region.
