Episode Narrative Drought conditions across portions of north Texas continued to improve during the month. Several counties in the northwestern portion of the County Warning Area (CWA) improved below severe drought status after 2 inches of rain fell during the month. Other areas, primarily north of Interstate 20, also improved. Counties in the southern portions of the CWA saw little rainfall and remained in exceptional drought. By the end of the month, only 12 out of 46 counties had burn bans in place. Although recent rainfall improved some of the overall drought conditions, the rain was easily absorbed into the ground and did not runoff into local lakes. Many lakes and reservoirs remained well below normal and water restrictions remained in place for many municipalities. In Limestone County, the drought impacts became so severe that the town of Groesbeck nearly ran dry of water near the end of the month.
Event Narrative According to the US Drought Monitor, the county was classified as extreme drought (D3) throughout the month. The county received little rainfall and drought conditions did not improve.
