ACF River Basin Drought Early Warning System

Conditions for the week of August 1-7

Most areas south and east of northwestern Alabama reported at least an inch of rainfall, with totals exceeding two inches in a broken pattern from eastern Alabama through the Carolinas. The heaviest rains soaked northern Georgia. This kept drought from developing in areas from the Carolinas southwestward through Alabama, but the hit-and-miss nature of summer rainfall in the region left patches of dryness scattered across Alabama and the Carolinas.
