Moderate drought through parts of FL and GA, some rain possible this week
By: Brittany Bedi | WCTV Eyewitness News TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) — North Florida remains under drought conditions.
Drier than average conditions continue.
The latest U.S. drought monitor was updater Thursday, December 14.
So far in the month of December alone, only 1.30 inches of rain was recorded at Tallahassee International Airport.
Around 1.48 inches of rain fell in Valdosta and 1.96 inches of rain reported in Albany.
The last measurable rain that fell across the area was on December 8 and 9.
Tallahassee is running 3 inches below average in rainfall this year.
Valdosta is running 9.06 inches below average and Albany is at a 7.11-inch rain deficit.
There is plenty of moisture along the Gulf Coast this week.
While that moisture will lead to more cloud cover and rain chances through most of the week, the rain will not be a drought-buster.
