The Texas Drouth Has Officially Ended (Posted By Gary Cutrer)
According to figures from Texas State Climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon, who also serves as a professor of atmospheric sciences at Texas A&M University. A recently issued U.S. Drought Monitor shows for the first time since the fall of 2007 none of the state in drouth. Only a few small patches of the state, near the Coastal Bend and along the Texas-Mexico border, are still depicted as abnormally dry. Still, some parts of the state continue to suffer, Nielsen Gammon said. “The recent rain has not fully made up for two years of drouth in parts of north-central, south-central and southern Texas.”
