I’ve been wondering where the rain is, and did a bit of research.
According to the United States Drought Monitor, Brattleboro and Windham County are officially considered to be in Moderate Drought, with about 85% of Vermont being categorized as Abnormally Dry.
The trend started in late June and has remained steady through July. The last time we were this dry in Vermont was June of 2015.
NOAA forecasts, for what it is worth, show a chance of rain in the next few days:
“Dry weather returns for late Friday night through Saturday, with the
next chance of showers and thunderstorms arriving late Saturday
night into Sunday with the chances for showers and thunderstorms
lingering into early next week.”
