The water resources and supplies outlook is good for the northern two thirds of the Mid-Atlantic. The outlook is fair for the southern third of the Mid-Atlantic.
Over the past couple of months, precipitation has continued to be scarce for the southern third of the Mid-Atlantic but has remained sufficient for the northern two thirds. Dry or minimal drought conditions continue for southern areas. But as increasing rainfall amounts overspread the Mid-Atlantic from north to south, conditions are expected to improve in southern areas. Overall, near average to above average amounts of rainfall are expected into the summer months. But, should dry conditions return, especially in southern areas, then increasingly dry or deepening drought conditions will likely become more widespread.
