As you may know, parts of our state slipped back into the "moderate drought" category with last week's update.
With the forecast featuring some dry weather in the next few days, we went straight to the source to talk drought: Dr. Ryan Boyles. He's the state's official climatologist, and his office is one of the members of the North Carolina Drought Management Advisory Council, the group responsible for keeping track of our drought status statewide.
We began talking about the current drought and how the Council decided to classify parts of our area as drought. We also talked about the very interesting and complex issues surrounding our area's rapid growth and the strain that growth can put on the water supplies our communities rely on.
Next week, we'll be talking about the tropics and what the rest of the season might hold for us!
