By David Emory StooksburyUniversity of GeorgiaAthens, Ga. – If Georgia doesn’t receive adequate rainfall over the next three to four months, drought conditions in summer and fall next year will likely be worse than those in 2007. Drought conditions will persist across regions of the state currently in drought and likely expand statewide by spring. Half of state in extreme droughtHalf of the state is in extreme drought conditions now. The worst conditions are across the mountains and piedmont regions west of Interstate 75. The extreme- to exceptional-drought regions of the state will probably muddle through the winter and early spring. But without a significant recharge of the soil moisture, groundwater, streams and reservoirs, conditions next summer could become catastrophic in these regions. Moisture conditions across southeast and coastal Georgia are deteriorating, and abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions have developed in these regions. Drought’s not breakingWhile winter rains will lead to short-term improvement in soil moisture, stream flows, groundwater levels and reservoir levels, it is imperative that Georgians do not assume that the drought is breaking. Currently, there is no relief in sight. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center predicts a moderate to strong La Niña pattern to persist through spring. With this pattern, a warm, dry winter and spring are highly probable across middle and south Georgia. Across north Georgia, there is high probability that all except the extreme northwest corner will be warm and dry through spring. Extreme northwest Georgia will be near the transition from dry weather to the south and wet weather across the Tennessee and Ohio River valleys. This means that northwest Georgia could be wetter or drier than normal through the winter and spring. With the moderate to strong La Niña pattern in place, there is a high likelihood that north and west Georgia won’t be able to recover from the drought this winter. Dry winter and spring likelyThe current La Niña pattern also means that areas of southeast Georgia that aren’t classified as being in drought could be experiencing drought conditions by spring. The Southeast Climate Consortium is calling for a high probability that most of the Southeast will continue to experience a dry winter and spring. Temperatures across most of the region will likely be above normal. Only northern Alabama and extreme northern Georgia have much of a chance of bucking the warm and dry trend. As we move into late spring and early summer, indications are that the La Niña pattern will slowly weaken with neutral conditions expected for the summer. NOAA forecasts a chance of some improvement across extreme northwest and north-central Georgia, but with drought likely to develop across southeast and coastal Georgia.

Ryan McDaniel swept Frontier Days features at Lovelock Speedway, earning $2,000 for IMCA Modified wins on July 27 and 28. (Photo by Melissa Coker, Melissa’s Out On A Limb Photography)LOVELOCK, Nev. (July 27-28) – Ryan McDaniel’s first visit to Lovelock Speedway has him looking forward to a return trip to the Nevada speedplant.McDaniel swept Frontier Days IMCA Modified features picking up $2,000 wins Friday and Saturday night.“I had never been to Lovelock before Friday and this was the first time I’d swept weekend shows with big payouts,” the new Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier said. “It’s been a long time coming, that’s for sure.”McDaniel won from eighth starting, ahead of James Thibodeaux and Cory Sample, on opening night and from seventh starting, in front of Sample and Joel Myers, on Saturday.A good run on the outside line took him to the front following a restart with seven laps left on Friday. McDaniel then went to the lower groove and used lapped traffic to his advantage in leading to the finish.Rounding out the top five were Robert Miller and Myers.Traffic didn’t do McDaniel any favors while he ran second on Saturday, however, as Sample found the way through quicker and pulled away.A caution erased that big advantage though and McDaniel capitalized, again going to the higher line to pass his way to the front.“My car came in at the better time,” said McDaniel, who weathered a late caution in completing the sweep. “My car was better from laps 15 to 30. It all worked out for me.”Don Childs was fourth and Thibodeaux took fifth.Feature ResultsJuly 27 – 1. Ryan McDaniel; 2. James Thibodeaux; 3. Cory Sample; 4. Robert Miller; 5. Joel Myers; 6.
