Severe Drought with no relief in sight

As we went through the first half 2017, the Ark-La-Tex received plenty of rainfall.
Even in the summer months I remember getting enough rain that I didn’t have to water my yard and the grass was thriving.
However, as school resumed, rain became scarce.
Lastly, here is a look at the normal rainfall totals that we received, the actual rainfall and the deficit or "blessing."
Shreveport is sorely lacking in rainfall with a deficit of more than a foot.
Texarkana’s "blessing" is a bit misleading.
Remember all those spring rains that came frequently with heavy totals along and north of I-30.
I am confident that the drought update next Thursday will show even more of the Ark-La-Tex under a severe drought.
Your StormTracker 12 Team will be tracking this drought very closely and providing updates on, as well as on the KSLA News 12 mobile apps and even on our Roku app.
