    If the letters H to O were there, the answer would be water. But they aren't, so the water is absent. The answer is drought.

    Drought has 5 letters if you eliminate the H and the O, as you did in your clue.

    or more cryptically
    dawn ?

    first half is A.M. and the split between dark and light is at dawn
