“Texas Drought Likely to Continue”, by Jeff Lindner, Harris County Flood Control.
After a brief relaxing of drought conditions toward the end of 2013, conditions have rapidly deteriorated again in early 2014 with nearly all of SE TX now in some form of drought.
In fact January 2014 was the 5th driest January on record for the state of state with an average precipitation of only .39 of an inch statewide making January 2014 the driest January since 1971! Rainfall has been sorely lacking across much of the state since early December 2013. The last significant rainfall to occur in SE TX happened the weekend before Thanksgiving and since then rainfall deficits have increased into the 4-8 inch range since January 1st across SE TX. This is on top of the rainfall deficits of 10-15 inches in 2013. Colder than normal temperatures have made the increasing dryness less noticeable along with the frequent bouts of cloudy and drizzly weather…however meaningful rainfall has been scarce in what is traditionally our wetter period of the year and when statewide water supplies tend to build for the coming warm season month drawdowns.
