Coastal Carolinas Drought Early Warning System

Conditions for the week of June 5-11, 2019

The Coastal Carolinas received highly beneficial rains during the past week as several slow-moving systems delivered widespread moderate-to-heavy rainfall accumulations (2-to-8+ inches). The rains helped boost soil moisture and streamflow levels, as well as provided much-needed moisture to stressed crops in South Carolina. In response, areas of Abnormally Dry (D0), Moderate Drought (D1), and Severe Drought (D2) were reduced or removed in the Carolinas.
