Episode Narrative July began where June left off in Deep South Texas, with Severe (D2) to Extreme (D3) Drought covering the entire area. However, the first widespread significant rainfall of the summer would eventually cover the entire area between the 1st and 8th, and knock the Lower Rio Grande Valley out of Severe or worse drought conditions by the 8th, leaving only the northern tier of counties in Deep South Texas (Zapata, Jim Hogg, most of Brooks, and northern Kenedy) in Severe drought conditions.
Event Narrative Extreme (D3) Drought began July in Brooks County, but increasing coverage of showers and thunderstorms during the first week of the month would knock levels down one category, to Severe (D2) by the 8th.
