The answer, Greatly. Two weeks ago, Southeast Alabama (the entire WTVY area) was under D5 drought conditions: Exceptional Drought. While we are not cleared of the drought completely…All of the WTVY viewing area and almost all of the Southeast is no longer in the most serious drought conditions. However, much of the Panhandle and SW Georgia are still under extreme Drought, or D4 conditions while Southeast Alabama is under D3: severe.
It is a little late to save much of the Summer crops quality, but the rain we are getting now is coming in increments, which is perfect for Fall crop development.
