(WGEM) - 2012 was one of the hottest and driest years on record and the drought continues to plague the Tri-States in many different ways. So what's the outlook in 2013?
While we don't have a forecast for the next year. But as for the next 90 days, our area has equal chances for wet or dry weather.
The Tri-States is still in a moderate drought which could affect water wells. However, experts say most wells that are drilled 125 feet or deeper shouldn't experience major issues.
While shallow wells can be affected by a long term drought, most residential wells shouldn't be affected.
