It continues to be hot and dry in South Florida. The abnormally dry conditions cover much of middle Florida down to South Florida, according to the US Drought Monitor.

Portions of South Florida, including Monroe County, Collier County, Hendry County, Broward County, Palm Beach County and Miami-Dade County are classified as ‘D1’ or in a moderate drought.

Pinellas County, Hillsborough County, Manatee County, southern Pasco County and western Polk County are the only parts of central Florida not abnormally dry.

In Georgia, the only part of the state abnormally dry is in north Georgia, extending from Henry County and Clayton County to Elbert County and Hart County. The western part of the state, along the Georgia-Alabama line, including Haralson County, Carroll County, Heard County and part of Troup County are abnormally dry as well.

The only part of Alabama that is abnormally dry is along the Alabama-Georgia line, including Cleburne County, Randolph County, Chambers County, Tallapoosa County, Clay County and small parts of Talladega County and Calhoun County.
