NO DOUBT, WE'RE IN A DROUGHT

May 06, 2007
S.E. USA
Northeast Florida is locked in a dry spell that has farms, fields and lawns going thirsty under a blanket of Georgia wildfire smoke.
But quenching a severe drought that's been building since last year would require at least 15 to 18 inches of rain over the next three months - around double the 8 inches that have fallen so far this year, said Jason Hess, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Jacksonville. Whether that will happen is a matter of debate among forecasters, Hess said, but getting rain soon is crucial with the hottest months approaching and the fires and dryness feeding off one another.
"We need something to push in here and get started, just to clean out the atmosphere," he said.
