Episode Narrative The drought over Texas continued to hold a grip on the South Texas region during the month of July. Only a few isolated rain events occurred during the month, with most areas receiving less than a half of an inch of rain. Monthly rainfall deficits ranged from 1 and a half inches over the Brush Country to around 2 and a half inches over the southern Coastal Bend. Even the hope of needed rainfall from Tropical Storm Don evaporated as the system diminished rapidly to a tropical depression before making landfall on July 29th.
Exceptional drought conditions over portions of the Brush Country and northern Coastal Bend expanded to cover almost all of South Texas by the end of the month. Exceptional drought advanced into Duval, McMullen, Jim Wells, Victoria, Calhoun, Aransas, Nueces, Kleberg, and San Patricio Counties by the end of the month.
Range land and pastures remained in poor condition. Livestock producers continued to provide supplemental feed to downsized herds. Some ranchers were even using emergency feed such as prickly pear. Corn and sorghum harvest were completed with low to marginal yields reported.
