The Drought Continues

Despite some rain last weekend across the Southeast it appears little was done to alleviate the drought conditions. Much of the state of North Carolina remains in the exceptional to extreme drought categories with coastal areas are experiencing a severe drought situation at this time. Regardless, all areas of the state need significant rainfall in the months ahead. Unless heavy rainfall begins to fall soon much of North Carolina will feel the full effect of this drought by late spring as plant growth will absorb moisture, evaporation rates increase, and irrigation is needed for crops. The National Weather Service forecast through spring calls for below normal rainfall.
