As expected, more imporvement in the drought is reflected in the Drought Monitor for this week.  In fact, we're seeing more of the "abnormally dry" area starting to move in, which is the lowest level of the drought categories.  Keep in mind that this report does not include the rainfall in the past few days (September 25th and 26th).  That rainfall will be in next week's report because the data is collected on Tuesday morning.  

Looking ahead, the 8 to 14 day forecast is looking to bring us more rain than normal, but the October forecast is looking dry.   

Here's a look at how bad the drought was last week
