Episode Narrative Very little rainfall resulted in drought conditions returning to West Central Texas. Warm and windy days without rain continued to dry out soils. Burn bans remained in effect in most counties. Some hay fields were being tilled to aerate the soils, large amounts of damage to wheat and other small grain crops from the extremely cold temperatures and dry conditions became evident, very little pasture grass was greening up, livestock remained in fair condition with ongoing supplemental feeding.
The Keetch-Byrum Drought Index was in the 500 TO 700 range. The 400 to 600 range is typical of late summer and early fall. In this range, lower litter and duff layers contribute to fire intensity and will burn actively. The 600 to 800 range is often associated with more severe drought with increased wildfire occurrence. Intense, deep burning fires with significant downwind spotting can be expected.
