Latest drought outlook less optimistic for Mid-South

Back in late July the Climate Prediction Center made a fall drought forecast that suggest slight improvement for the Mid-South (Improving drought outlook for the Mid-South). Unfortunately, the most recent update to that forecast looks bleak.

The latest Drought Monitor shows that severe drought has expanded farther north into south-central Kentucky since late July. With the recent heat wave across the U.S., the CPC has updated their forecast to suggest that drought conditions across Kentucky and Tennessee may actually worsen through the fall and that drought conditions are expected to develop across southern Illinois and eastern Missouri.
