Texas Drought Monitor (10/06)!

DROUGHT INDEX: The latest Texas Drought Monitor has been released for the Lone Star State, showing a staggering 90% of Texas under some sort of a drought category in early October. Even though, the State of Texas saw a cooler September month, there has been a lack of rainfall over the last month and a half that is leaving devastating effects for the state.

In the Brazos Valley, drought conditions are expansive. In Madisonville, the area is behind -17.00 of rainfall for the yearly deficit. For a majority of the Brazos Valley, a “Moderate Drought” (D1 – Drought Stage) runs across much of the area, including Brazos, Leon, Madison, and Walker Counties. A “Severe Drought” to “Extreme Drought” (D2-D3 – Drought Stage) runs across the Southwestern Brazos Valley across portions of Austin, Waller, and Washington Counties. Let’s hope the promising update from the Climate Prediction Center about above-average rainfall for the Brazos Valley over the next 8-14 days.

Forecast Discussion:

After a sunny, quiet week, clouds are finally maneuvering into place over the Brazos Valley late Thursday into Friday. That’ll bring morning temperatures on the warmer side than what we’ve been seeing the last several mornings. We’ll move out of the 50s into the lower 60s by Friday morning, which is around average for lows by early October standards. Through the end of the week and into the weekend, afternoon highs linger into the upper 80s to lower 90s, some 5° above average for this time of the year. Friday brings added clouds, which’ll also help to elevate temperatures.

By next week, the forecast is a bit shaky about our local rain chances. However, there is slimmer of hope that low-end rain chances could return to the Brazos Valley by mid-to-late week. In the latest NWSPC 10-14 day outlook, the Climate Prediction Center places the Brazos Valley in an above-average category for rainfall over the next few weeks. For now, we’ll keep a 20-30% chance for scattered rain in the forecast by Wednesday into Thursday. Temperatures could also swing us out of the 90s and into the 80s.

5-Day Weather Outlook:

Friday: High 91. Low 60. Partly Cloudy, Hot.

Saturday: High 88. Low 57. Sunny.

Sunday: High 87. Low 57. Sunny.

Columbus Day: High 88. Low 57. Sunny.

Tuesday: High 88. Low 60. Sunny.
