Episode Narrative A lack of rainfall across Deep South Texas resulted in the drought conditions spreading and intensifying across the region soon after the beginning of April. Extreme (D3) Drought conditions developed across the entire Rio Grande Valley except for the immediate coast, with severe conditions in a stripe from Brooks County to eastern Cameron and Willacy Counties.

These conditions would prevail through month's end, as persistent, record heat, zero rainfall, and strong southerly winds worsened conditions with virtually no wetting moisture, including very little morning dew. Dryland crop damage began to appear at month's end; dollar damage estimated will be available with the May Storm Data report.
Event Narrative The drought conditions intensified across Brooks County in early April. Extreme D3 drought conditions developed across the western half of Brooks County in early April due to the continued lack of significant rainfall, combined with record heat and wind.
