The U.S. Drought Monitor released a new map today – and the news is mixed.
For the first time since March of last year, no part of Texas is under the worst stage of drought. But parts of Central Texas are actually drier than they’ve been in the last few months.
The map shows parts of Travis, Williamson, and Milam counties have been elevated from moderate to severe drought.
That’s because June, which is usually the state’s wettest month, has been abnormally dry. In fact, the last five weeks have been the second driest late May to mid-June on record.
