Episode Narrative Drought conditions continued across most of Central Alabama through the month of November, despite the rainfall received from several storm systems that brought some showers and thunderstorms to the state. By the end of the month, roughly three-quaters of Central Alabama was considered to be in Exceptional Drought (D4), with the remainder in Moderate (D1) to Extreme (D3) Drought.

Agricultural, hydrologic, and socioligical impacts continued to be widely felt. The rainfall that did occur in November came too late to help many crops. The majority of livestock and pasture conditions remained poor to very poor. The dry weather also hampered the planting of winter crops, due to very dry and hard soils. Although rainfall during the month produced some very minor rises on area rivers and reservoirs, most continued to be much below normal with serious negative impacts continuing. Pool levels on some reservoirs were at or near record low levels. Some of the most serious impacts continued on the Coosa and Tallapoosa Rivers. Navigation on the Alabama River below Montgomery was adversely impacted by low river stages. The threat of water shortages for municipal water systems persisted, and most water restriction plans already in place continued.
