Episode Narrative Rainfall was much below normal across Central Alabama throughout the month of May, and severe (D2) to extreme (D3) drought conditions continued to develop and spread across the area. Most stream flows reached or nearly reached record low levels, and reservoir operators struggled to fill pools to normal summer levels. Rainfall for the month was below a half inch in most areas, with some locations receiving less than one tenth of an inch of rain. By the end of May, year-to-date rainfall deficits ranged from 10 to 20 inches, with the highest deficits in the northern and northwest sections of Central Alabama. Area water utility companies enacted conservation plans. Agriculture also remained highly impacted.
