Drought has developed rapidly in the Southeast. Record-breaking late summer and early fall heat and persistent short-term dryness have led to a sharp increase in drought intensity and coverage across the region. This Drought Update Webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of current drought conditions in the Southeast and the outlook for the rest of the year. Impacts on the agricultural sector will be highlighted.
- Victor Murphy, Climate Services Program Manager at the National Weather Service (NWS) Southern Region Headquarters, will present on drought conditions and outlook.
