Episode Narrative Very dry conditions continued across northeast portions of Louisiana during most of October. There were some rains that came late in the month which provided some temporary relief. Rainfall amounts ranged from a half to one and a half inches with locally higher amounts. Most locations were 1 to 3 inches below normal for the month. The dry stretch resulted in severe(D2) to extreme(D3) drought conditions. Crops were put under stress under the warm and dry conditions. The likely impact will be less crop yields for harvest time.
Event Narrative Rainfall was 1 to 2 inches below normal for the month over much of the parish, with extreme drought conditions across the entire by the end of the month. Some rain of around 1 to 1.5 inches affected the region toward the end of the month which brought brief relief to the drought conditions.
