Latest drought monitor shows much of midstate in moderate drought


While December 2016 has seen a lot of rain, the latest drought monitor shows that much of middle Tennessee is still in a moderate drought, and a few counties are still under a severe drought.

The monitor was released last Thursday and another one will be issued on 12/19.

So far this month, we've gotten 6.55 inches of rain in middle Tennessee. That's the most rain we've gotten in one month since July 2015.
