Drought watch lifted for Washington region
The drought watch that was issued for the Washington metro region Sept. 9 has been lifted, the Drought Coordination Committee of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments said Thursday.
The area's water resource has improved because of recent rainfall and cooler weather. Barely more than a week ago, the 2010 rainfall deficit in Washington was nearly 7.5 inches, the Capital Weather Gang reports. That deficit has since been reduced to just about 2.5 inches.
