More rain on the way!

Eric Snodgrass

A very active Pacific branch of the jet stream has done its best to eliminate drought across most of the US over the last six months. One region that has not seen the benefits lately has been the Southeast. Fields across the Southeast have seen the emergence of severe drought conditions once again, but the good news is that rain is on its way! The next three days look very wet for those dry peanut and cotton fields in the Southeast. These rains will go a long way to help fight small brush/forest fires in the region too.
