Episode Narrative Finally some longer-term drought relief came to the Tennessee Valley in March. Rainfall deficits for the year barely grew and rainfall amounts were almost near normal. A significant cold front moved through on the 3rd and 4th and was the month???s biggest rainmaker in many areas. But periodic rain, and even a little snow, continued to fall throughout the month, about every four days.
However, by March 20th, dry high pressure built into the Tennessee Valley and turned off the rainfall for most of the rest of the month, with only trace amounts beyond that.
Drought conditions improved approximately one category across the board. By the end of March, none of the WFO Huntsville Hydrologic Service area was in the D4 /Exceptional Drought/ category, though more than half of the area was still in the D3 /Extreme Drought/ category.
