Episode Narrative Severe drought lingered across parts of western Kentucky. This drought began during the summer, and a cold and dry December resulted in little improvement. Drought conditions at the end of the month ranged from moderate across the Ohio River counties to severe along the Tennessee border. Subsoil moisture remained low. For the year 2010, most locations ended the year with precipitation deficits of 10 to 13 inches. 2010 was the fourth driest year on record at Paducah, where official records go back to 1949. At Paducah, 2.22 inches of precipitation fell in December. This was 2.16 inches below normal. The long-term moisture deficits were reflected in below normal streamflows on some waterways. Agricultural impacts were minimal since the growing season ended in the fall.
