CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) The weekly drought monitor came out Thursday morning with portions of the area being upgraded to a Severe Drought, The rest of the area is at a Moderate Drought.

This is due to the hot and dry streak we saw with USDA reporting topsoil moisture on June 4th was 95% (anything over 50% is dry).

We do have a wet weather pattern through the next 5 days that will help, but drought conditions will not be updated until next Thursday.
