Water Resources Outlook - Southern MARFC Area

Map of the Southern Water Resources Outlook Region

November 25, 2014 - November precipitation has been quite light so far with only 1 to 2 inches for most areas. Northeast Maryland and northern Delaware have been a bit wetter with around 3 inches. Temperatures for November have been averaging 2 to 5 degrees below normal. 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 25) streamflow data from the U.S. Geological Survey shows that streamflows are running near normal. Groundwater levels are averaging near or below normal.

The weather outlook through the first week or so of December calls for above average precipitation. Temperatures are expected to begin the period below normal but then warm to above normal levels. The NWS Climate Prediction Center's 30 day outlook for December calls for above normal precipitation and temperatures. The NWS Climate Prediction Center's 90 day outlook for December, 2014 through February, 2015 calls for near average precipitation and temperatures.

The outlook for water resources and water supplies is good for many areas of the southern portion of the MARFC service area. Much of Virginia, especially central portions, has been downgraded to fair. Dry conditions have persisted for the past few months interrupted by only brief wet periods. Improvement in water resources and supplies has been slow to occur and have actually been slowly downgrading. With the onset of winter, further degradation will be slow to occur and improvement may occur quickly if wet weather were to occur.
