DROUGHT INDEX: The latest Texas Drought Monitor was released for the Brazos Valley Thursday, September 24, 2021. Drought conditions are beginning to spread across the Lone Star State in the wake of “abnormally dry” conditions. Burn bans are also becoming more frequent, especially in the Brazos Valley.
Locally, “Abnormally Dry” (D0 – Drought Stage) conditions have returned to the Brazos Valley leading to those burn bans being issued. August & September 2021 have brought little rainfall to the region, as the late summer heat took over. The current Autumn Outlook looks to bring less rainfall and warmer temperatures than average. Hopefully, as temperatures cool down with the waning of summer, we’ll see cooler weather and better rain chances, as seasonal cold front roll through the region.
