Drought Monitor Goes Relatively Unchanged After Quiet Week

  Minimal precipitation leads to few changes on the Drought Monitor map.

Following several significant storm systems over the past several weeks, last week was much quieter in terms of precipitation, the Drought Monitor reported.

The quiet week was noted especially in the East, where much of the snow and rain from weeks past fell. The region this week saw below-normal temperatures along with some modest half- to one-in. precipitation totals, the Drought Monitor reports.

Drought has retreated a bit in parts of Pennsylvania, Virginia and southeastern North Carolina as well as northeastern coastal South Carolina. For the rest of the region, the short-term precipitation hasn't been enough to surpass the lingering 60-90 day deficits across the region and well up into New England.
