Episode Narrative Persistent drought conditions continued across portions of north Texas. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, much of the region was still experiencing extreme (D3) drought conditions. The areas which were rated exceptional drought (D4) last month had received enough rainfall to be downgraded into the D3 category this month. Even though drought conditions were lessened by a few rain events this month, serious hydrological problems remained. For instance, as much water was used from Lake Bridgeport in one month alone as was saved through conservation efforts by north Texas over the summer. Almost every north Texas lake remained well below conservation levels. The rain events this month helped the lake level rebound somewhat, however, levels began dropping again within a day or two of the end of the rainfall. Bosque, Comanche, Eastland, Lampasas, and McLennan Counties all continued burn bans through the month of October. Although fire danger was reduced by the rainfall during the month, it could easily become elevated again. The winter months are commonly drier and windier than the summer months, and with plenty of dead vegetation available for fuel, these conditions could contribute to higher fire danger.
