Episode Narrative Although rainfall was not particularly heavy for the month, the rain that did occur was of a higher frequency, with rain every few days. The heaviest rain events were on January 10th and 11th, when many locations, except in the Shoals region, saw over an inch of rainfall; and on the 31st, when in many spots the heaviest calendar day rainfall since last August occurred.

Overall totals for January still ranged from two to three inches across Northwest Alabama to three to five inches elsewhere in the Central Tennessee Valley. A few isolated spots in extreme NW Alabama and on Sand Mountain and Lookout Mountain tallied over five inches of rain for the month. These totals still were below normal in all cases, so drought conditions deteriorated across the region, with most areas in D2 (Severe Drought) to D4 (Exceptional Drought).
