DROUGHT: Temporary seems like an eternity

Continued dry even when a cold front or should we say a dry cool front sweeps through over the weekend. Last time we had an inch + for rainfall was August 17th. This measured 1.27″ to be exact. Last Friday a rain band from Hurricane Matthew’s outer reach produced a trace of rain. September 25th we received in some spots close to .41″ but this was not widespread like the August date. Temporary drought conditions continue across the region.
