Episode Narrative Torrential rains from strong to severe thunderstorms finally put a dent in drought conditions across the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas. An estimated 4 to 6 inches of rain fell on the night of March 29th in Hidalgo County, with McAllen International Airport receiving 4.37 inches of rainfall, and setting a daily rainfall record. Initial storms developed across the King Ranch of Kenedy County during the mid-afternoon hours of March 29th and spread west into northern Hidalgo and Starr counties by early evening.
Event Narrative Although the greatest rainfall occurred south of the county, some improvement in drought conditions occurred in the SW corner of the county, where drought conditions went from Extreme (D3) to Severe (D2) conditions. The remainder of the county continued in Extreme (D3) conditions.
