Into record-high territory for January.

There's still water in the low spots (i.e. domes, strands and marshes),

Thank you very much. This is a helpful and timely post , as we will be doing several prescribed burns this week. Your chart indicates a January dryness comparable to 2011. The info is valuable for tomorrow's briefing .
