ALABAMA -USA- the National Weather Service says that, "since Katrina came and left, for some reason we've had like a blocking pattern over us which has kept the weather systems away. It's kept us dryer than normal. It's also made us a little warmer than normal and that hasn't changed, so it's, it's VERY UNUSUAL." They are half a year behind in rainfall. Normal rainfall would be about 66 inches a year, since January 2006, they are 32 to 33 inches below that. View Video Report
