CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Weather experts say 2007 will register among the country's top 10 warmest years.
The southeastern U.S. also is still in the midst of a record-setting drought, which is entering its second year.
And things aren't expected to change anytime soon.
According to the National Weather Service in Morristown, above-normal temperatures and just below-normal rainfall are expected to stick around through March.
The average temperature for 2007 is about 2 degrees warmer than normal, and rainfall for the year is about 15 to 20 inches below normal across the state.
