Drought Numbers: Big Improvement from 2016

Drought Numbers: Big Improvement from 2016.
Just over two inches in April and less than that in May wasn’t good enough.
That’s where things went downhill.
We had a slow recovery in June and July, but then it was too late.
Check out the difference in rain totals from this year to last for April and May.
Now we are still at a deficit in the Shoals and Huntsville on the 2017 totals.
Only a small sliver of west Alabama has “dry” conditions.
That’s a big improvement from just a couple of months ago when most of the Tennessee Valley was under a “severe” drought.
We’ll monitor the situation in the coming months, but as for now, it looks good!
