Episode Narrative Below normal rainfall fell during the month of September across much of West Tennessee. Memphis International Airport only received 0.14 inches of rain the entire month of September. The lack of rainfall expanded severe (D2) drought conditions into extreme portions of Northwest Tennessee. The biggest impact from the drought was on agriculture as many crops suffered due to the lack of rainfall. Hydrological concerns started to become an issue by the end of the month as many lake and river levels dropped. Burning permits were required due to the drought. A few wildfires occurred as a result of the dry conditions.
Event Narrative Severe (D2) drought conditions expanded into Obion County.
