Field conditions

Soil moisture deficits across all soil types currently range from 10mm in the north midlands to 40mm or 45mm in parts of the south.

Moderately and poorly drained soils are expected to become saturated in parts of the northwest and southwest, with well-drained soils remaining just under saturation in those regions.
