POSTED: July 10, 2014 12:14 p.m.

Drought is creeping back into the region.

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor report released today shows that a large chunk of the region, including South Hall and most of Jackson County, has “abnormally dry conditions,” as of data collected through Tuesday.

National Weather Service data shows that 25.42 inches of rain have fallen in Gainesville so far this year and that the normal amount is 28.55 inches.

 Lake Lanier’s elevation was 1,070.76 feet above sea level Thursday, or just shy of the full pool of 1,071 feet.
A chance of thunderstorms is in the forecast through Monday for the Hall County area, with the best chance on Tuesday, according to the Peachtree City-based weather service.
