Episode Narrative Below normal rainfall continued during the month of June across West Tennessee. As a result, severe (D2) drought conditions expanded across Northwest Tennessee and extreme West Tennessee by the end of June. In addition, drought conditions intensified to extreme (D3) conditions across extreme Northwest Tennessee. Many crops that were planted during the spring struggled to grow due to lack of water. Irreversible damage was done to the corn crop while soybean and sorghum fields yield potential continued to dwindle as a result of the dry conditions. Many pastures were in poor condition forcing farmers to feed cattle baled hay. Lake and river levels dropped to low levels. Burn bans were issued for many counties as a result of the dry conditions.
Event Narrative Severe (D2) drought conditions intensified to extreme (D3)conditions.
