Episode Narrative The U.S. Drought Monitor issued through the National Drought Mitigation Center on September 25, depicts exceptional drought across Jones and Haskell Counties and shows extreme drought over the Big Country and Sutton County. Meanwhile, the rest of the region was under an extreme drought. The lack of rainfall and very hot conditions have caused the drought to expand across West Central Texas.
According to the Texas Crop Weather Report issued September 25, by the Texas A&M Agriculture Program for the northern Big Country Region, pastures and rangeland of those counties with exceptional to extreme drought remained in poor condition and were in need of rain. Stock-water tanks remained low as did lake levels. Some of the dryland cotton was being claimed as a loss. The irrigated cotton will provide some yields.
Surface water supplies are still low across West Central Texas due to limited runoff from rainfall. The City of San Angelo has enacted drought level two water restriction because of a limited, 13 month water supply. Several other cities including Abilene, Ballinger and Brownwood have also enacted water restrictions because of the dwindling water supplies.
Over the rest of West Central Texas the hot, dry conditions continued. Soil-moisture levels continued to decline with high evaporation rates. Most row crops showed severe moisture stress. Stock-tank water levels dropping. Supplemental feeding of livestock continued.
Event Narrative The U.S. Drought Monitor classified the drought as extreme for Throckmorton County.
