...Drought Conditions Getting Established...


*      From 10-12 October, high pressure and fair weather dominated Louisiana’s weather.

*      On 13-14 October, a front moved into North Louisiana and stalled, which helped produce scattered showers across that region.

*      Excepting northern Parishes, most of Louisiana received no rain this week, which will only increase our areal coverage of “abnormally dry” conditions and drought in the U.S. Drought Monitor.

*      For the week, Statewide precipitation averaged 0.18 inches, which was 0.69 inches below normal.
