Episode Narrative Rain during the end of April and scattered throughout the month of May did little to ease the prolonged drought conditions across much of north Texas. The area that saw the most relief was locations in and northeast of the DFW Metroplex. However, the rainfall during the month still provided some temporary relief to area farmers and helped corn, grain sorghum, soybeans, pastures, and hay land. Unfortunately, with the rain also came hail and high winds that damaged fields and crops as well. Exceptional drought conditions (D4), according to the US Drought Monitor, continued across much of the southern and southeastern counties of north Texas. Drought impacts include fields shriveling up leaving farmers little if anything to harvest, pastures burning up due to wildfires, and ranchers forced to sell their herds early. During the early part of the month, a total of 28 counties had burn bans, but many of the counties had removed the burn bans by the end of the month due to the several days of rainfall.
Event Narrative According to the US Drought Monitor, the county was classified as severe drought (D2) during the beginning of the month. However, beneficial rain during the month brought relief and the drought conditions improved. The county received an average of 5-8 of rain during the month.
