Drought is re-emerging in Illinois thanks to a recent dry trend.
Nicole Albano at the National Weather Service in Lincoln indicates we're seeing a deficit in rainfall so far this month which is helping move us back to a drought.
According to Albano, a typical late August or September will see the remnants of a tropical storm or two roll up into the midwest, unfortunately, that hasn't been the case so far this year.
The next chance of rain comes our way as we get into the upcoming weekend. Otherwise, as we head to October, precipitation is trending to equal chances of above or below average.
