ACF River Basin Drought Early Warning System

Conditions for the week of August 7 – 13, 2019

Showers and thunderstorms were hit-and-miss across the region, but only a few tenths of an inch of rain fell on most over central and northern Georgia, and the eastern half of Alabama. Rainfall was a little more abundant in western Alabama, Florida, and especially southeastern Georgia. At least a few tenths of an inch fell, and amounts of 1.5 to locally 3.5 inches covered nearly half of these areas. The heavier totals (over 1.5 inches) were more widespread in southeastern Georgia, with 4 to nearly 6 inches soaking a few patches near the Florida border. Dryness and drought improvement were noted in a few small areas where rainfall was heavier, but deterioration was much more common, especially in eastern Alabama. Most notably, abnormal dryness expanded broadly to cover most of central Georgia.
