Episode Narrative Very dry conditions continued across northeast portions of Louisiana during August. The dry stretch resulted in a combination of severe (D2) and extreme (D3) drought conditions continuing across northeast Louisiana despite a few locations receiving above normal rainfall for the month. Crops were put under more stress from the hot and dry conditions. The likely impact will be less crop yields when harvest arrives in early Fall.
Event Narrative Rainfall was above normal for the month and drought conditions improved slightly to Moderate (D1) drought conditions.
