There may be hope on the horizon for drought-parched land in Franklin County.
The National Weather Service has changed its prediction of below-normal precipitation for the rest of the winter and spring and now says normal to above-normal snow and rainfall is expected in coming weeks and months.
Up until last month the NWS was predicting a much warmer and drier winter than normal. The prediction of a warm temperatures still holds, however.
“Just when you think we are going deeper into the drought, the boys at the National Weather Service have changed the outlook for the winter and summer precipitation,” said King Smith, a Preston resident who keeps official records for the NWS.
“The eight-to-14 day outlook is for above-normal precipitation. For the rest of December the forecast is also calling for above-normal moisture,” he said.
