AUSTIN (KXAN) — There was good news Thursday from the Climate Prediction Center about the future of our drought. The U.S. Seasonal Drought Outlook for the period Aug. 21 through Nov. 30 indicates an end to drought conditions for much of Central Texas, with drought improvement elsewhere.
This can be attributed to several factors, including the expectation of a developing El Niño pattern in the Pacific Ocean, which often increases rainfall across Texas in the fall and winter.
