Much of North Florida has seen some rain the last couple of days but, that doesn't mean we're out of the red.

Meteorologists at the National Weather Service say a rain storm here and there is beneficial to the major drought in the area however, we've got a ways to go before we get back to normal rainfall.

NWS Meteorologist, Kelly Godsey said, "A lot of that water just immediately will get soaked up and then, when you get very warm like this, like we've seen in the last few weeks, that helps evaporate out some of that water. So, we're really not seeing much improvement to the ongoing drought condition."

There is no authorized burning allowed in the viewing area. This could include fireworks.
