Even though this week we did see some rain in our far western counties, all of the areas that saw rainfall stayed at a category 5 which is considered to "Exceptional."
At this time, rainfall is not in the KFDX forecast and a dry summer pattern is becoming more apparent. Now, over 50% of Texas is in a category 5 drought and with summer knocking on our door, that number is expected to rise.
Counties that are bold and in italics are counties that underwent stage changes.
