Despite the rain that fell over the weekend, Chattooga County and Northwest Georgia remains in a drought.

The area started the year with such a rainfall deficit that catching up to a "Normal" amount of rainfall is difficult.  The rain received over the weekend was much needed and some areas received over 3" of rain, other areas did not get quite as much.

Forecasters are calling for a lower chance for rain this week as humidity is not expected to be as high.
