Dry Spell May-July 2007
The recent dry weather in Central PA has left many wondering - How dry is it?

Well, here's one good way to look at how dry it has been:
The map below (and ones just like it for other time periods) was generated by the Middle Atlantic River Forecast Center (MARFC) here in State College.
It shows that the last 60 days have, indeed, been drier than normal over most of the region. Some rain on Wednesday (see Central PA (KCCX) rainfall estimate, or Mid-Atlantic maps) helped some areas - but only a little bit.
The MARFC has more maps of rainfall departure from normal on-line. See more maps like this one! Choose different time frames.

While no one has thrown around the "Drought" word in official circles, we always have information to look at on our Drought Information Page that might help you see just how dry it may be.
