#DroughtMonitor 11/24: A large area in the South/Southeast has dried out in the last couple weeks as La Nina takes hold.
This is reflected with the increasing Abnormal Dryness (D0) and even #drought in LA, MS, and AR.
However, rain is on the way.
#DroughtMonitor 11/24: Parts of the northern/central US saw precip in the last week, while the southern US was mostly dry.

Just in: For #TimelapseTuesday, here's the record-breaking 2020 Atlantic #hurricane season from @NOAA's #GOESEast 🛰️.
The season had 30 named storms—from #Arthur to #Iota— five of which hit Louisiana. It was also the record fifth consecutive above-normal season.
Tomorrow, the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich 🛰️ is scheduled to launch! Data from this joint international mission will help improve @NOAA's efforts to track sea-level rise and study tsunamis, El Niño, and hurricane intensity.
Seasonal Outlook by @NOAA’s @NWSCPC
Trend continues with improvements in the Northwest/Northeast plus parts of the Midwest, and #drought expansion in the West and Plains.
Drought may also develop across a large swath of the Southeast (La Niña).
#DroughtMonitor 11/17: This week’s change map shows scattered improvements in the Northwest, Northeast, PA, and parts of the Midwest.
The Southwest and TX continue to deteriorate. The rest of the Southern Plains is worsening now too.
