It's just a week into October, but it’s been already been a record-breaking month when it comes to high temperatures.
Atlanta, Athens and Macon saw all-time highs last week.
Most of Georgia has seen little to no rain over the past month and that combined with high temperatures, means drought-like conditions persist through most of the state.
Pam Knox is the Director of the University of Georgia Weather Network. She says once it gets this dry, it gets more difficult for rain to develop.
"Because we’ve been on this warming trend for so long, and really summer has continued into the fall this year it seems like. It’s going to take a while for things for really cool off," she said.
Knox expects more widespread rain to occur in the coming weeks, bringing us closer to more seasonal weather.
