April showers bring…..May showers????

An unusually wet March brought major drought relief to north Georgia. Only the Lake Lanier and Lake Hartwell basins were left in drought. The remainder of north Georgia was drought-free. April showers only continued the trend. April in Georgia was wet across the state, with temperatures ranging from 0.9 degrees above normal in Brunswick to 2.3 degrees below normal in Alma. Rainy and wet conditions across the region contributed to localized flooding, particularly in south Georgia, and caused delays in planting in many soggy fields. The big unknown is what the tropics will bring Georgia this summer and winter. Much of the state’s late summer and fall rain comes from tropical disturbances. Without moisture from the tropics, August through October can be very dry. At this time there are no clear indications of how much rainfall the summer will bring.
