Episode Narrative Below average precipitation, above average temperatures, persistent southerly winds, and increasing sun angle contributed to intensifying drought conditions in Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley through the middle of April. The accelerated pace of drying decreased soil moisture levels to the abnormally or excessively dry category through this period.
The United States Drought Monitor, Texas sector, noted drought conditions deteriorating to extreme (D3) over portions of Jim Hogg, Brooks, and Kenedy Counties with the remainder of Deep South Texas experiencing severe drought (D2) conditions. The drought conditions continue to mainly affect agricultural interests, including crops, pastures and grasslands.
Any drought related crop damage likely held off until May.
Event Narrative No rain falling in Brooks County through the first half of April resulted in persistent, yet deteriorating, drought conditions. The United States Drought Monitor, Texas sector, reported that drought conditions intensified to extreme (D3) over the northern half of Brooks County and that (D2) drought conditions occurred over the southern half of the county.
