REPORTS OF OTHER ROADWAYS IN THE CENTRAL/EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE
COUNTY WARNING AREA /CWA/ THAT ARE EXPERIENCING ISSUES/DAMAGE DUE TO
THE ONGOING DROUGHT.

CLIMATE SUMMARY...
TEMPERATURES OVER THE PAST WEEK HAVE WAVERED FROM ABOVE NORMAL TO
BELOW NORMAL...BUT HAVE LARGELY BEEN ABOVE NORMAL. DURING THE LAST
THREE DAYS OF NOVEMBER...TEMPERATURES WERE AROUND 10 TO 15 DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL AT MANY LOCATIONS. THE MAIN STORY HAS BEEN THE RECENT
PATTERN CHANGE THAT HAS BROUGHT SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL TO THE REGION.
OVER THE LAST WEEK...RAINFALL AMOUNTS RANGE FROM AROUND TWO TO THREE
INCHES IN PARTS OF NORTHWESTERN ALABAMA...TO AS MUCH AS SIX TO EIGHT
INCHES IN PARTS OF JACKSON COUNTY (WHERE RAINFALL DEFICITS HAVE BEEN
LARGEST). NORMAL WEEKLY RAINFALL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR IS AROUND 1.25
TO 1.50 INCHES. MUCH OF THIS RAINFALL FELL ON TUESDAY NIGHT AND
WEDNESDAY MORNING HOWEVER...WHICH IS AFTER THE DATA CUTOFF FOR THIS
WEEK`S DROUGHT MONITOR. THIS RAINFALL AND ANY MORE THAT FALLS THROUGH
TUESDAY MORNING AT 6 AM CST WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR THE NEXT DROUGHT
MONITOR ISSUANCE NEXT WEEK.

TEMPERATURES HAVE AVERAGED WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR MOST OF THE YEAR WHICH
HAS HELPED LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT AND SUSTENANCE OF DROUGHT
CONDITIONS. THE RECENT METEOROLOGICAL FALL (SEPTEMBER THROUGH
NOVEMBER) RANKS AS THE WARMEST ON RECORD AT HUNTSVILLE AND MUSCLE
SHOALS AND SECOND WARMEST AT SCOTTSBORO. FOR THE YEAR TO DATE...THIS
ALSO RANKS AS THE WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD FOR HUNTSVILLE AND MUSCLE
SHOALS AND SECOND WARMEST AT SCOTTSBORO.

MOST LOCATIONS FROM LATE AUGUST TO LATE NOVEMBER RECEIVED VERY LITTLE
RAINFALL. HOWEVER...STARTING NOVEMBER 27TH...RAINS BEGAN TO MOVE BACK
INTO THE REGION. IN FACT...THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE RAINFALL THAT HAS
OCCURRED OVER THE LAST THREE MONTHS FELL DURING THE LAST THREE DAYS
OF NOVEMBER. HOWEVER...THE RECENT RAINS THAT OCCURRED WERE NOT ENOUGH
TO ERASE THE DEFICITS FOR THE THREE MONTH PERIOD. DEFICITS ARE STILL
AROUND SIX TO EIGHT INCHES FOR MOST OF THE AREA. ON SIX MONTH
TIMESCALES...RAINFALL DEFICITS ARE STILL AROUND EIGHT TO TWELVE
INCHES FOR LARGE PORTIONS OF NORTHEASTERN ALABAMA SPOTTY AREAS
ELSEWHERE. MOST DEFICITS IN SOUTHERN TENNESSEE AND NORTHWESTERN
ALABAMA ARE GENERALLY AROUND SIX TO EIGHT INCHES...WITH SCATTERED
EXCEPTIONS.

NEAR THE HEART OF WHAT HAS BEEN THE WORST DROUGHT CONDITONS THIS
YEAR...AT SCOTTSBORO...THE PRECIPITATION DEFICIT OVER THE LAST THREE
MONTHS HAS NOW BEEN REDUCED TO 4.62 INCHES AND OVER THE LAST SIX
MONTHS IS NOW 9.41 INCHES. THE PRECIPITATION DEFICIT FOR THE YEAR IS
STILL A RELATIVELY LARGE 14.83 INCHES.

PRECIPITATION/TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK...
THE RECENT PATTERN CHANGE THAT FINALLY BROUGHT SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL
TO THE REGION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO BRING BOUTS OF PRECIPITATION
TO THE REGION THROUGH THE NEXT WEEK. RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO RETURN
TO THE REGION ONCE AGAIN BEGINNING ON SATURDAY AND LAST PERHAPS INTO
THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. RAINFALL TOTALS DURING THIS PERIOD ARE
EXPECTED TO BE AROUND TWO TO THREE INCHES.

TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO AVERAGE NEAR NORMAL INTO THE WEEKEND AND
THEN WARM EARLY NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER...TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO
FALL BELOW NORMAL AROUND THE MIDDLE TO LATTER PART OF NEXT WEEK.

THE OUTLOOK FOR WEEK TWO /DEC 9TH - 15TH/ FROM THE CLIMATE
PREDICTION CENTER SLIGHTLY FAVORS NEAR NORMAL RAINFALL AND SLIGHTLY
FAVORS BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES.

FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER...PRECIPITATION IS NOW STRONGLY FAVORED TO
BE ABOVE NORMAL IN THE AREA...WITH EQUAL CHANCES FOR BELOW...NEAR OR
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES.

THE LATEST SEASONAL OUTLOOK FOR THE WINTER PERIOD (DECEMBER THROUGH
FEBRUARY) FAVORS ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE REGION.
HOWEVER...EQUAL CHANCES EXIST FOR BELOW...NEAR OR ABOVE NORMAL
PRECIPITATION. TYPICALLY DURING LA NINA WINTERS...DRIER THAN NORMAL
CONDITIONS ARE PREVALENT IN THE GULF COAST REGION AND ABOVE NORMAL
PRECIPITATION IS FAVORED FOR PARTS OF THE OHIO VALLEY AND THE
MIDWEST. IN BETWEEN THESE REGIONS IN THE TENNESSEE VALLEY...RESULTS
ARE OFTEN MIXED...WITH SOME WINTERS EXPERIENCING WETTER THAN NORMAL
CONDITIONS AND OTHERS EXPERIENCING DRIER THAN NORMAL CONDITIONS. THE
LATEST SEASONAL DROUGHT OUTLOOK VALID FROM NOVEMBER 17TH TO FEBRUARY
28TH INDICATES THAT DROUGHT IS LIKELY TO PERSIST ACROSS THE REGION
THROUGH THE PERIOD. THIS INCLUDES ALL OF NORTHERN ALABAMA AND
ADJACENT AREAS OF SOUTHERN MIDDLE TENNESSEE.

HYDROLOGIC SUMMARY AND OUTLOOK.../UPDATED NOVEMBER 28TH 2016/
RIVER AND CREEK STREAMFLOWS HAVE INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY AT MOST
LOCATIONS FROM RECENT LOW AND HISTORIC LOW FLOWS. A FEW SITES ARE
STILL RECORDING RELATIVELY LOW STREAMFLOW VALUES SUCH AS THE BIG
NANCE CREEK (8TH PERCENTILE)...CYPRESS CREEK AT FLORENCE (15TH
PERCENTILE)...MULBERRY FORK NEAR ARKADELPHIA (15TH PERCENTILE)...AND
SHOAL CREEK AT IRON CITY (22ND PERCENTILE).

LAKE AND RIVER LEVELS ALONG THE HEAVILY REGULATED TENNESSEE RIVER
SYSTEM HAVE LARGELY BEEN UNAFFECTED BY THE DROUGHT CONDITIONS THIS
YEAR AND ARE OPERATING WITHIN OR NEAR NORMAL POOL LEVELS. BEAR CREEK
WHICH WAS OPERATING BELOW ITS GUIDE CURVE RECENTLY IS NOW RISING TO A
LEVEL NEAR ITS NORMAL OPERATING LEVEL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. LEWIS
SMITH LAKE HAD BEEN OPERATING BELOW ITS NORMAL GUIDE CURVE SINCE
EARLY SUMMER...BUT VALUES ARE NOW AT THE NORMAL LEVEL FOR THIS TIME
OF YEAR.

ACCORDING TO THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER...THE LATEST DAILY SOIL
MOISTURE RANKINGS AS OF NOVEMBER 30TH CONTINUE TO INDICATE
ABNORMALLY LOW SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS ACROSS THE AREA. DAILY SOIL
MOISTURE PERCENTILES ARE STILL AROUND THE BOTTOM 1ST TO 5TH
PERCENTILES FOR MUCH OF THE AREA.

THE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY GROUNDWATER WELL SITE IN CULLMAN COUNTY
SHOWS THAT GROUNDWATER LEVELS FELL BELOW THE DAILY MEDIAN VALUE
DURING THE MARCH TO LATE APRIL PERIOD AND HAVE SINCE REMAINED BELOW
AVERAGE SINCE THAT TIME. WATER LEVELS DROPPED RAPIDLY FROM SEPTEMBER
TO LATE NOVEMBER...BUT HAVE SINCE REBOUNDED VERY SLIGHTLY.
NEVERTHELESS...VALUES REMAIN ABOUT FOUR FEET BELOW NORMAL.
GROUNDWATER LEVELS AT THE MONITORING SITE IN LAWRENCE COUNTY DECLINED
RAPIDLY FROM EARLY SEPTEMBER TO LATE NOVEMBER...BUT ROSE SHARPLY
AFTER THE RECENT RAINFALL. VALUES THAT WERE ABOUT 10 FEET BELOW
NORMAL ARE NOW JUST ABOUT 2 FEET BELOW THE MEDIAN VALUE FOR THIS TIME
OF YEAR.

THE OUTLOOK FOR SOIL MOISTURE AND STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS OVER THE
NEXT WEEK IS FOR CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT DUE TO THE EXPECTED RAINFALL.

NEXT ISSUANCE DATE... THE NEXT DROUGHT STATEMENT WILL BE ISSUED
MONDAY...DECEMBER 5TH.
