Late Night Check on Today’s Severe Weather Risk

A peek at the state radar at 2 AM shows scattered showers, but nothing noteworthy. That will certainly not be the case later this morning.

February 15 Drought Update; Rain Chances FINALLY Increasing!

We finally had a widespread precipitation event last week, although it didn’t bring any good news to the northwest half of the state. The heaviest rain totals ended up being across far Southeast Texas. That region received four to six inches of rain over the last two weeks. Most of Northeast Texas, East Texas, the Brazos Valley, and Southeast Texas have generally seen one to two inches of rain over the last two weeks. The D/FW Metroplex south through Austin and San Antonio generally received rainfall amounts under one-half inch. Seventy-one percent of Texas is now considered to be...
