Episode Narrative Below normal rainfall continued during the month of July across West Tennessee. As a result, severe (D2) drought conditions expanded across all of West Tennessee and extreme (D3) conditions expanded southward across extreme West Tennessee by mid July. In addition, drought conditions intensified to exceptional (D4) conditions across extreme Northwest Tennessee. Many locations were as much as ten inches below normal in rainfall for the year through the end of July. 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 Extreme (D3) conditions intensified to exceptional (D4) conditions.
