Drought conditions are unlikely to improve much going into the Fall months as La Nina once again restrengthens. La Nina, which is the abnormal cooling of water in the Equatorial Pacific, typically brings drier than normal conditions to much of The South. Drought conditions across Arkansas will likely persist or get worse over the next 3 months according the Climate Prediction Center.
