Seaonal Drought OutlookSeptember 23rd, 2013 at 3:54 pm by Jonathan Conder under Weather
I hope you enjoyed the rain last Friday and how your lawn greened up just a little bit as the next few months may be dry and the drought may persist or even worsen. Above is the new seasonal drought outlook from the Climate Predication Center and if you look closely, you can see that parts of the area, the drought is expected to persist.
If you live south of Fort Wayne, where we saw a lot of rain last week, you may be doubting the drought level. You have to remember that the even though the soil may be wet on the top, the drought level is a summation of the overall amount of precipitation we have had over the last several months. Also remember that a D0 drought is the very beginning of a drought (abnormally dry) and we are no where near close to where we were last summer.
