December was warm with several temperature records broken across the Southeast region. Recent precipitation events have improved streamflows and reduced some of the drought severity across the region. A cold outbreak later this month could freeze some areas, but should not reach too far into Florida. This month’s topical presentation discussed hourly precipitation trends in the Southeast.

Following an active tropical season and wet summer, the Southeast region is becoming drier. A below-normal amount of precipitation for this time of year is leading to lower streamflows and drought conditions, especially in the Carolinas and parts of Virginia. The current La Niña is expected to continue through the winter, with drier and warmer than normal conditions predicted for much of the region.

According to the November 16 U.S. Drought Monitor, 100% of California/Nevada is in drought, with 70.6% in Extreme (D3) or Exceptional (D4) Drought. An exceptional atmospheric river (AR5) brought rain, snow, and wind to Northern California and Nevada in late October. This AR and recent storms improved drought conditions but have not come close to ending the drought for the region. The current drought developed over many months to years, leaving soils parched.
