Little change in local drought status even after recent rain

Nearly 5 inches of soaking rain spaced out over the last week in the Hill Country has eliminated some areas of dry soil, but the heavy rain did not fall in the right areas to eliminate local drought status.

The one area under a soil drought this week is the same as last — only including parts of Caldwell County, southeast of Austin.

Statewide, drought conditions have expanded to include 6% of the state, up from 4.8% last week.
