WHAT'S NEW: All of the South Shore is now in a severe drought with the North Shore upgraded to a moderate drought. 
Water quality report map shows many sites have improved since last week. There is still a potential fish kill with poor water on the North Shore at Cold Spring Harbor and Northport Harbor. Conditions in the Western Great South Bay have improved with fair to poor conditions farther east due to warm water, potentially harmful bacteria and algae.
WHAT'S NEXT: Warmer Friday with dry conditions through the weekend. We are tracking scattered showers early next week from Monday into Wednesday morning, but it looks like rain totals are coming down a little bit with most spots only picking up .25" on average. This won't do much to combat the drought. No other big rain makers on the way in the near future.
