Guess what........ I was in Southern NY today (New Rochelle)... Same look. Uh Oh. If the cause was the drought of last season; this season is not going to help either.

Are we seeing the extinction of the Sycamores?

I saw a couple of fallen leaves so I will be sending them in as well.

Current Drought Status. Notice the area here is now D1 status.


That site has a summary for all regions of the U.S

Mid-Atlantic and Northeast

Dry conditions prevailed over much of the region, though well-placed showers (1-2 inches) in southwestern Pennsylvanian and environs led to the removal of Moderate Drought (D1) and a reduction of Abnormal Dryness (D0) across the central Appalachians. In contrast, D0 and D1 were increased from New York into New England due to declining streamflows (locally below the 10th percentile) and a lack of rain over the past 90 days (less than half of normal). In fact, many of the Northeast’s D1 areas are now running rainfall deficits in excess of 6 inches over the past 6 months.
