Drought Conditions for Alabama

| December 1, 2012 @ 4:35 pm

Depending where you are in the state, your drought conditions could vary substantially from someone just a few counties over. Most areas for the month of November are behind for their monthly rainfall totals, and many areas are behind for the year. In our coverage area alone, many sections from Huntsville, down to Birmingham, Tuscaloosa and into  the western sections of the Black Belt are not experiencing any long term affects from drought. The rain earlier in the week was heavier and more concentrated in our western counties and tapered off quite a bit as it moved across the state. Some of our eastern counties remain in an exceptional drought and these include parts of Clay, Randolph, Tallapoosa, Chambers and Lee Counties. Much of the southeastern agricultural areas of the state of been very dry for much of the year and that has caused some issues with crop losses in that part of the state. Luckily we are moving out of the drier months of the year and into a more wet ones and hopefully the winter rains will replenish the ground moisture  before the growing season starts in the spring
