ACF River Basin Drought Early Warning System

Conditions for the week of April 10-16, 2019

Light to moderate rains (0.5-2 inches) fell across most of the Southeast, except for portions of southern Georgia and northern Florida (less than 0.5 inches). Locally heavy rains (2-6 inches) fell on northeastern Georgia and northern Alabama. Where heavier rain fell, drought conditions improved: near Savannah, GA, central Georgia, and southwestern Alabama [moderate drought to abnormally dry]), and abnormally dry to nothing in east-central Alabama, west-central Georgia and southwestern Alabama. In contrast, areas that missed out on the rains (less than 0.5 inches) saw abnormally dry conditions expand slightly into northern Florida as 90-day deficits reached 3-5 inches.
