DROUGHT INDEX: The latest Texas Drought Monitor was released Thursday, May 13, 2021, which shows further improvement with local drought conditions in the Brazos Valley. In fact, with last week’s string of rainfall, a majority of the region is running “drought-free”.
A small portion of Brazos, Leon, Madison, & Robertson Counties are running on “Abnormally Dry” (D0 – Drought Stage) conditions in the Northern Brazos Valley. A small portion of Southern Montgomery County in the Southeastern Brazos Valley is also running on “Abnormally Dry” (D0 – Drought Stage) conditions. Hopefully, next week’s period of heavy rainfall could be a good start to the summer season, continuing to help alleviate drought conditions locally and provide additional relief.
