Since I knew for a fact that at least three other Slavic languages share the same word for 'dry' and I couldn't believe that they all borrowed such a basic word from French, I decided to check.
No, it's not a French borrowing.
Another word that got my attention - i can see that going back further it comes from proto-indo-european, which makes sense to me. In Hindi, both dry (masculine adjective) and drought are "sookha", and in Bangla it would be "shookno" (i am approximating these - very badly - in the English alphabet of course!)
