Drought conditions rapidly expand across Texas

Although Austin’s year-to-date rainfall has been close to normal, we have had a very dry streak of weather this fall.

Check out the numbers statewide

  • NOW:  15% of Texas in drought
  • LAST WEEK:  9% of Texas in drought
  • 3 MONTHS AGO:  1% of Texas in drought

As a dry, windy cold front moves through the area tonight, let’s all be sure to do our part to prevent accidental grass and wildfires.
