Episode Narrative Drought conditions continued across most of Central Alabama through the month of January, with monthly rainfall deficits ranging from .5 to 2.5 inches. By the end of the month, roughly three-quarters of Central Alabama remained in Exceptional Drought (D4), with the remainder in Moderate (D1) to Extreme (D3) Drought.

Agricultural impacts were relatively low due to being in between growing seasons. However, hydrologic and socioligic impacts continued to be felt. Most stream and river levels across Central Alabama continued to be much below normal, with flow levels generally 25 percent or less of normal. Reservoir levels showed limited improvement due to rainfall that occurred during the month. The threat of water shortages for municipal water systems persisted, and most water restriction plans already in place continued.
