The remaining abnormal and moderate dry conditions in Georgia are isolated to the southeastern part of the state. They start as far west as Brooks and Lowndes counties and stretch north-eastward to Long and Liberty counties.

The southern half of Houston County in Southeast Alabama is abnormally dry.

However, the dry conditions are widespread across Florida.

Most of Florida is either abnormally dry or moderately dry. The northern half of the state is in a moderate drought, starting in Taylor and Dixie counties and stretching eastward to Nassau and Duval counties in north Florida and Flagler and Volusia counties along the Atlantic coast.

The moderate dry conditions are also located in Lee, Hendry and Collier counties. Abnormally dry conditions are mostly located in the central to southern parts of the state.

South Carolina is free of any drought conditions. A portion of southeastern North Carolina is abnormally dry.
