Episode Narrative The drought over Texas continued to hold a grip on the South Texas region during the month of August. Although heavy rain occurred over parts of the Coastal Bend and Victoria Crossroads on the 25th, most locations across South Texas received well below normal rainfall for the month. Monthly rainfall deficits were from around 2 inches for the Brush Country to above 3 inches for portions of the coastal counties.

Exceptional drought conditions existed over most of South Texas except for the western portions of Webb and Southern Duval Counties at the beginning of the month. By the end of the month, exceptional drought covered the entirety of South Texas counties.

Different stages of water restrictions were in effect for the cities of Laredo, Victoria, Point Comfort, Orange Grove, and Mirando City. Range land and pastures remained in poor to very poor condition. Livestock producers continued to sell cattle with hay in short supply. Cotton harvest was near completion by the end of the month with below average yields reported.
