Episode Narrative Severe drought lingered across parts of western Kentucky. This drought began during the summer of 2010, and a cold and dry January resulted in little improvement. Only 1.14 inches of precipitation fell at Paducah in January, compared to a normal amount of almost 3.5 inches. 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. 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.
