It’s official. The Nottingham area, along with much of the Baltimore region, is now experiencing a severe drought.
On February 1, the United States Drought Monitor designated the Nottingham area as a “D2” zone – or severe drought.
The rain and snowfall thus far this winter have amounted to the second driest on record.
The U.S. Drought Monitor indicates that drought conditions continue to gradually worsen as overall dry weather persists. The D2 (Severe Drought) conditions that were first designated on January 23rd have now increased in area.
On the bright side, February is historically Baltimore’s snowiest month, so there may be relief on the horizon.
