Episode Narrative The month of February was characterized by above normal rainfall over the Coastal Bend and Mid-Coast regions and eastern portions of the Brush Country, while below normal rainfall occurred over the remainder of the Brush Country into the western part of the Victoria Crossroads. The highest rainfall occurred over the Coastal Bend with much lighter amounts over the northern Brush Country. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches occurred over the coastal counties. Localized higher amounts above 6 inches were recorded over northern Jim Wells, northwestern Nueces, and eastern Calhoun Counties. Rainfall amounts between 1/4 to 1/2 inch occurred over northwest portions of La Salle and Webb Counties.
The exceptional drought, existing over much of South Texas at the start of the month, abated to severe status over the eastern portions of the Brush Country and Victoria Crossroads due to the above normal rainfall received during the month. By the end of the month, exceptional or extreme drought status existed over northern Webb and La Salle Counties, for the coastal counties of Kleberg, Nueces, San Patricio, Aransas, then north into Bee County.
Rainfall amounts were 1 to 2 inches above normal for the month over the Coastal Bend and Mid-Coast regions with localized areas over Jim Wells, Nueces, and Calhoun Counties with 3 to 5 inches above normal. Rainfall deficits from monthly normals of 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches occurred over the northern Brush Country into western portions of the Victoria Crossroads.
Soil moisture remained short over portions of the Brush Country while conditions improved over the Coastal Bend with the above normal rainfall. Runoff from rainfall helped fill livestock tanks in the Coastal Bend. Range land and pastures improved over much of South Texas with the rainfall.
