The Drought Monitor is updated each Thursday. The map below was updated on Thursday, November 9. Notice how the “exceptional drought” category is now creeping into southeast TN. Exceptional drought is the highest level of drought category on the scale.
Current Snowfall Depth
Jet streams are relatively narrow bands of strong wind in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Jet streams follow the boundaries between hot and cold air. Since these hot and cold air boundaries are most pronounced in winter, jet streams are the strongest during winter.
