Episode Narrative Severe Drought conditions persisted through October. In early October, rainfall deficits totaled nearly 10 inches. However, a series of low pressure systems late in the month brought between 3 and 6 inches of rainfall to slightly reduce those deficits. All counties and independent cities in the Commonwealth were designated primary disaster areas with the exception of the Arlington County and the independent cities of Alexandria and Falls Church, which were designated contiguous disaster areas. Many counties and cities posted both voluntary and mandatory water restrictions throughout the month. Just before the needed rainfall towards the end of the month, the National Drought Monitor listed much of northern Virginia and the northern Piedmont under Extreme Drought conditions. Damage estimates were not available.
