How’s your lawn looking today? Likely on the brown side if you don’t water it. Indeed, the Garden State’s second dry spell of the year has grown and it appears that little relief is on the immediate horizon, according to experts… "The stream flow is quite low, the groundwater is falling, the precipitation has been definitely sub-par, but nothing of record-breaking proportions," said David A. Robinson, the New Jersey state climatologist. "Temperatures have been warm, but not especially warm, but you put it all together and it puts us in a bit of a predicament and certainly has our guard up. The point is that all the pieces have come together to lead us to a situation that warrants attention."… According to Robinson, this dry spell follows one in the spring that ended after the fourth wettest June on record in New Jersey. July was the 55th driest since 1895 and last month was the 13th driest August on record (preliminarily), according to reports by Robinson.
