How is the drought affecting you? – Poll
Spring is in full bloom, but plants are looking less lush lately thanks to a month without much rain. Is the lack of precipitation changing you, too?
"There are obvious effects such as brown lawns and low stream flow, but there's no significant long-term danger yet, as long as we get some rain soon," NJ 101.5 Meteorologist Dan Zarrow said today.
According to Zarrow, New Jersey is experiencing a short-term drought. North Jersey, for example, had entered the “D-1,” or moderate drought category, as of Thursday morning's state drought report.
State Climatologist Dave Robinson of Rutgers University says water conservation is a rapidly developing concern. Naturally, this could affect things like gardening, pool use and sprinklers.
