Water Resources Outlook - Southern MARFC Area

Map of the Southern Water Resources Outlook Region

November 14, 2014 - November precipitation has been quite light so far with only 1/4 to 3/4 inch for most areas. Northeast Maryland and northern Delaware have been a bit wetter with 3/4 to 1 1/2 inches so far. Through the middle of the month, temperatures for November have been averaging about normal plus or minus a degree or so. Over the past 90 days, most areas have been 2 to 5 inches below normal precipitation-wise. Only a couple of scattered locations have been above normal.

Current (November 14) streamflow data from the U.S. Geological Survey shows that streamflows are running near or below normal. Groundwater levels are averaging mostly near normal.

The weather outlook for the next couple of weeks calls for below average precipitation for most of the period, though precipitation is expected to be above average late in the period. Temperatures are expected to be below or much below normal. The NWS Climate Prediction Center's 90 day outlook for November, 2014 through January, 2015 calls for near or above average precipitation as well as near or above average temperatures.

The outlook for water resources and water supplies is "good" for all of the southern portion of the MARFC service area. After beneficial rain in October, dry conditions have returned so improvement in water resources and supplies has slowed considerably. However, as we approach winter, further degradation will be slow to occur and improvement may occur quickly if wet weather were to continue.
