That was the verdict from state climatologist David Stooksbury, who warned Tuesday that conditions are expected to worsen in the coming months.
He said drought conditions have already spread into south-central and southwest Georgia, and temperatures as high as 106 degrees could grip parts of the state if the dry conditions intensify.
He said rainfall across much of south Georgia is below normal, and so are soil moistures around the state.
Georgias best chance for widespread relief will be tropical storms, but that typically doesnt take place until late summer.
He said the months of June and July are critical: Without major rain, the soil will get drier and streams and reservoirs will continue to fall.
