Episode Narrative March, traditionally the wettest month of the year, was instead one of the driest on record in 2007. Rainfall totals were less than two inches across the entire Central Tennessee Valley, with some areas seeing less than an inch. Normal rainfall for March is six to seven inches. By the end of the month, a significant portion of the area had been downgraded to D3 (Extreme Drought) status on the U.S. Drought Monitor. As a result, NWS Huntsville began issuing the drought statement at least twice per week. A few small grass fires developed during this period, but no known damages or injury reports were received.
