ALBANY, Ga. — A weak El Niño in the Pacific Ocean could mean a cooler, wetter fall in Florida and portions of Georgia and Alabama, helping to recharge rivers and groundwater supplies that were depleted earlier this year during months of dry weather.
That’s according to a Georgia climatologist.
On a more immediate note, a cold front moved into the Southeast on Sunday. As a precaution, the National Weather Service issued wildfire warnings for large parts of northern Florida, southern Alabama and Georgia.
Officials were concerned the wind and low humidity will create incendiary forest conditions, despite the recent rainfall.
