Drought conditions increasing across the Brazos Valley
(KBTX) – After a three month stretch with less than 5" of rain in the Brazos Valley, drought conditions are starting to spread back into the area.
The Brazos Valley is not alone.
The drought situation is increasing across Texas as a whole.
35% of Texas is considered to be in some classification of drought, up from 20% last week.
Abnormally dry conditions have increased 11% — much of that from the Brazos Valley down to Houston and the coast.
Much needed rainfall is in the Brazos Valley’s forecast in the upcoming week.
Bad News for the Brazos Valley: Moderate Drought has spread across most of Milam, Robertson, Leon, & NW Houston Counties (along with west Austin County).
Abnormally dry conditions have taken over the rest of the area.
