October 24: Dry Weather Continues, Daily Links

WEATHER

Generally calm weather expected this week, with temperatures running above normal all the way through the weekend.  A few clouds will float through today today, but temperatures will still reach up to the mid to upper 70s this afternoon:

Just a couple of degrees cooler tomorrow, then close to 80° Wednesday.  A chance of showers heads our way Wednesday night, but it doesn’t look like it will amount to much.  The RPM model is showing some late-night showers, but they’ll probably just be enough to settle the dust a bit:

More slight shower chances over the weekend, also not looking impressive:

So far for the month of October, we’re almost 2″ below normal for rainfall, putting us nearly 4″ below normal for the year:

The northern two-thirds of the Midstate are now classified as “abnormally dry” on the U.S. Drought Monitor, with “moderate drought” conditions in the southern counties:

Things are much worse down around Chattanooga and into northwestern Georgia and northeastern Alabama, with extreme/exceptional drought conditions there.
