Will Week’s Rain Get Stark Out of Drought Watch?

WASHINGTON, DC (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – We’ll have to see if the half-inch of rain we got on Sunday and whatever officially falls Monday and Tuesday gets the area out of Drought Watch.

The latest from the USDA Drought Monitor last week still has Stark at the lowest watch level.

The rain deficit since June 1 is over four inches.

.48 inches of rain fell at the airport on Sunday.
