Episode Narrative Very dry conditions continued across central Mississippi 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 two inches with locally higher amounts. Most locations were 1 to 3 inches below normal for the month. The dry stretch resulted in severe (D2) drought conditions to expand during the month with even the portions of extreme (D3) drought conditions expanding as well. 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. This resulted in moderate to locally severe drought conditions across the county by the end of the month. Some rain of 1 to locally 2 inches did affect the county toward the end of the month. This provided some relief to the drought conditions.
