The state's climatologist says drought is returning to parts of Georgia.
The state's climatologist says drought is returning to parts of Georgia.
Mild and moderate drought conditions have expanded over the past month to cover western and southern parts of Georgia.

State climatologist David Stooksbury says above-normal temperatures and below-normal rainfall has caused soils to dry across the state.

He says rainfall for the past month has been as low as 50 percent of normal for large portions of the state.

Counties south and west of Haralson, Paulding, Douglas and Troup are among those suffering moderate drought conditions. He says much of the rest of the state is classified as abnormally dry.
