Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

The Weather Center � Blog Archive � Austin Area Drought Worst in U.S.: "Wow–this is really something. Because dry conditions have improved in the southeastern U.S., our Central Texas drought is now the worst ongoing drought in the United States.

The U.S. Drought Monitor weekly update came out today, and notice in the graphic below, Central Texas is considered to be in a D4 drought–which is the maximum intensity for drought conditions. It is also known as an Exeptional Drought–even worse than Extreme designation."
