Episode Narrative The brutal ongoing drought across north Texas saw some improvements during the month of October. The northwestern counties of the Fort Worth County Warning Area saw the most dramatic improvements as several counties received up to nine inches of rainfall during the month. Drought conditions improved from exceptional (D4) to severe (D2) in Eastland, Jack, Palo Pinto, Parker, and Montague counties. Other areas mainly north of a Mills to Dallas to Fannin County line saw improvements in drought conditions. Unfortunately, locations to the south of this line received very little rainfall and remained in the exceptional drought (D4) category. Lakes and ponds remained low and water restrictions remained in place across the region, even in communities which received very beneficial rainfall. All 46 counties in north Texas had burn bans at the end of the month, but several counties were able to lift their burn bans during the month.
Event Narrative According to the US Drought Monitor, the county was classified as severe drought (D2) throughout the month. The county did receive three to four inches of rain during the month, but it was not enough to improve the drought conditions.
