Severe And Extreme Drought Are Spreading Across North Texas, According To A New Drought Map

A new NOAA drought map shows extreme and severe drought spreading across North Texas.

Flooding rains in August helped to alleviate some of the droughts exacerbated by a hot, dry summer, but a recent dry spell is making things worse.

Since September 2, there has been no measurable rain at DFW Airport. The DFW Metroplex has a 1.4-inch deficit for the month and has been nearly four inches dry since September 1.

Rain is expected later this weekend, but it will not be enough to make a significant dent in the drought.

North Texas can expect 1 to 1.5 inches of rain on Saturday night through Monday.
