Episode Narrative Drought conditions continued to worsen across much of the Fort Worth County Warning Area (CWA) during the month of August due to very little rainfall. All 46 counties in the Fort Worth CWA were experiencing at least severe drought conditions (D2) throughout the entire month, and all but portions of Tarrant, Dallas, and Denton counties were in at least extreme drought (D3) by the end of the month. Also, all areas except locations along the Interstate 20/30 corridors experienced exceptional drought (D4) at some point in the month. Ranchers continued to sell some of their cattle because they did not have sufficient water or grass to survive. Farmers were forced to harvest cotton crops three weeks early due to the drought conditions, and the size of the cotton crop was much smaller than normal. Area lakes and reservoirs continued to experience well below normal pool levels which led to some communities issuing water conservation notices for residents and businesses. One to three inches of rain did fall in the western portions of the CWA, near Eastland and Palo Pinto Counties, and this area did see some improvement in the drought conditions because of the rain.
Event Narrative According to the US Drought Monitor, the county was classified as severe drought (D2) at the beginning of the month. With little to no rain, conditions worsened and the county was classified in exceptional drought (D4) by the end of the month.
