Drought-like conditions that were widespread across the Southeast have dissipated in recent weeks, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.


The only remaining dry conditions in Florida are located along the west coast. Severe dry conditions start as far north as Levy County and stretch southward to Manatee, Sarasota and De Soto counties. Abnormally dry conditions are also observed as far north as Dixie, Gilchrist and Alachua counties and stretch southward to Lee, Hendry and Collier counties.

Georgia’s only dry conditions remain in South Georgia. Abnormally dry conditions are located in Wilcox, Ben Hill, Irwin, Turner, Tift, Berrien, Cook, Colquitt, Worth, Dougherty, Lee and Crisp counties.

There are no dry conditions reported in Alabama, as it has sufficient moisture.

South Carolina’s only abnormally dry conditions are located in two areas in the northern part of the state. One is in parts of Lancaster and Chesterfield counties, with the other in parts of Florence, Williamsburg, Clarendon, Sumter, Lee and Darlington counties.

Parts of Union and Anson counties in southern North Carolina are abnormally dry, as are parts of Washington, Tyrell, Beaufort and Hyde counties in the eastern part of the state.
