Drought expansion from the south & northwest is underway with drought conditions returning to our north with areas south ofg U.S. 36 seeing a resurgence of drought.
This is largely due to 2012 having one of the driest Novembers on record. As of November 27, the Wabash River is just 1.9′ at the Brown Street Overlook gauge station, after dropping to 0.8′ this summer. It is projected to go down to about 1.0′ by early next Tuesday.
2012 deficit at the station is -2.57″ as of November 29.
