Drought Restrictions Lifted in Alabama After Recent Rain

After weeks and months of waiting, finally, the badly-needed rains arrived across the Southeast from last week are starting to have positive impacts across the region.

On Monday, the Alabama Forestry Commission (AFC) announed that the month-long no-burn ban across the state had been lifted due to the recent rain.

In the last week, Huntsville, Alabama saw over six inches of rain; Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama both received over 2.5″ of rainfall, and other spots like Anniston, Auburn and Tuscaloosa received well over three inches of rain in the same time frame, a badly-needed, full soaking rain to help alleviate persistent drought conditions across the state and the region.

More rain will continue to fall across the region through most of Tuesday before drier weather returns on Wednesday and through the rest of the week and into the weekend.
