Extreme D3 drought conditions continued across the western half of Brooks County, D2 drought conditions developed across the north, central, eastern and southern one half of Brooks County with the exception of the extreme northeastern corner of the County due to the continued lack of significant rainfall; record to near record heat and persistent winds exacerbated drought conditions.
