Texas Drought Index (09/24)!

DROUGHT INDEX: The latest Texas Drought Monitor has been released for the Brazos Valley, showing a vast amount of improvement in just a few weeks for the region, and for a large portion of the Lone Star State. The Brazos Valley ending the late summer season, with cooler weather and beneficial rainfall. In addition, a few cold fronts and Tropical Storm Beta have brought additional rainfall for the region.

Locally, the entire Brazos Valley is almost “drought-free”. However, Southern Madison, Northwestern Walker, and Northern Grimes Counties are experiencing “abnormally dry” conditions, but what isn’t accounted for is the recent rainfall from Tropical Storm Beta. Those changes will be reflected in next week’s drought monitor and should show vast improvements in these areas. Elsewhere, there are no burn bans in effect for the Brazos Valley.

As expected, folks in far Western Texas and towards the Texas Panhandle are experiencing severe to exceptional drought conditions. Rainfall is needed desperately.

Forecast Discussion:
We’re ending the week on a warmer, drier note. The remnants of former Tropical Storm Beta have moved into the Southern Cumberland Plateau & Southern Appalachian Mts, causing heavy rainfall and flooding. Behind this system, drier air has filled back Southeast Texas, mixing with what’s left the atmosphere. The combination of drier, cooler air, clear skies, and a light wind will lead to areas of patchy fog by Friday morning for the Brazos Valley. The afternoon brings highs into the middle 80’s under clearing skies.

Temperatures continue to warm into the weekend, with afternoon highs slated to return to the middle/upper 80’s under ample sunshine (maybe a bit of clouds mixed in early Saturday). Overall, the weekend looks warm & sunny. By Sunday night into Monday morning, a strong (and potent) cold front looks to reach the Brazos Valley, stirring a chance for scattered showers, few t-storms on that northerly wind shift. Once the rainfall clears, drier (and much colder) air looks to filter into the Brazos Valley. Temperatures will be much cooler through much of the upcoming week: mornings upper 50’s to lower 60’s, with afternoon highs remaining in the unseasonable middle to upper 70’s. For now, soak up what’s left of that late-summer feel, as we transition into our first major taste of fall in a few days.

5-Day Weather Outlook:
Friday: High 82. Low 64. Clearing, Patchy Fog.
Saturday: High 85. Low 66. Partly Cloudy – Mostly Sunny.
Sunday: High 89. Low 69. Mostly Sunny.
Monday: High 73. Low 53. Stormy. 50% Chance/Rain.
Tuesday: High 76. Low 53. Mostly Sunny.
