Episode Narrative Temperatures near or just above 100 degrees, frequent gusty winds, moderate to low relative humidity quickly erased any short term drought relief provided by mid May rainfall as conditions deteriorated from Severe to Extreme across all of Brooks County for the balance of June. Locally heavy rainfall the final week of the month would bring some relief as July arrived.
Event Narrative Severe (D2) Drought conditions deteriorated to Extreme (D3) in all of Brooks County on June 7th, and would continue through the end of the month. Rainfall of more than 2 inches across the southern half of the county would provide a bit of relief at month's end. Livestock, particularly cattle head, were affected most as very short moisture levels dwindled available feed and required [a large sale] of cattle much earlier in the year than usual. [Hay supplies were limited/damaged by the extreme drought - details here].
