More Records Thursday with an Expanding Drought

Bookmark and Share

More record highs set across the area on Thursday, but notice they were just across the southeast thanks to a cold front moving through the region.  This front just wasn’t fast enough to make it to the southeast before the heat of the day arrived so temperatures soared much like they did Wednesday.  The change in air mass was welcome for much of the north and west where afternoon temperatures were 15 to 30 degrees cooler as you can see in the picture below.  Unfortunately, this front moved through the area dry thanks to very little moisture and lift, the 2 main components you need for precipitation.  We of course need the rain, as drought conditions slowly get worse.  The new drought monitor was revealed early Thursday and it continues to show what we already know with conditions slowly deteriorating.  The only good news is it has been a very slow expansion to the drought during the month of August but a new month is about to begin so hopefully that will change our luck a little bit.  Check out the latest drought information in the graphics below.
