Some counties in the region have had little or no rain for 60 days, and some farmers are saying a drought may be setting in again. Dry and warm weather continues to create extreme risk for forest fires.

John Sikora, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service, said the region has not sunk into drought yet. He said the weather tends to turn wet the last of November.

Charleston has received 38.41 inches of rain this year, about on track for the normal annual rainfall of 42.5 inches, but most of the rain fell between May 15 and the end of July.

Since the end of July, rainfall has been light in the area.
