To increase consumer awareness of the serious drought conditions throughout North America, The Weather Channel (TWC) is traveling across the Northeast to demonstrate the impact of North America's severe weather (or the lack thereof), to explore the causes and near-term drought outlook and to demonstrate the need for viewers to do their part in conserving water.

From May 8 to 12, TWC and the StormTracker truck will be on-location in the Northeast region observing and interviewing people about the effects of this year's drought. Drought segments will air during Evening Edition (9 to 11 p.m. EST) on May 8 and 9 and during Weekend Now (5 to 10 a.m. EST) on May 11 and 12. The schedule is as follows:

* May 8 - Live in Boston with TWC on-camera meteorologist (OCM) Mish Michaels.
* May 9 - Live in New York/New Jersey with OCM Kristin Dodd.
* May 11 - Live in New York/New Jersey with OCM Kristin Dodd.
* May 12 - Live in New York/New Jersey with OCM Kristin Dodd.

Meteorologists at TWC say the best remedy for restoring reservoirs to normal levels and saving crops is a prolonged period of regular, moderate rainfall events. Experts at The Weather Channel indicate a wetter pattern for the Northeast during the next week or two that could provide some help, but the rainfall will not be enough to erase drought conditions that plague much of the Eastern United States.

Thanks Scott. We are in a severe drought here in Utah. We are now in our 4th year and the Governor has declared several counties as drought disaster areas, so I'll make sure to watch. Their specials are really well done and very informative.

The drought here in the New York City area is at Stage 3. That means you can't wash the car, water the lawn, power wash any surface, and many more restrictions. Initally the use of private swimming pools was going to be banned, but now they're giving us till July 1st to fill our pools (thank god). There's been a few good rains lately, but the experts say that it will take a major hurricane to fill our reservoirs back to normal levels. Droughts suck!
