While it was dry across much of the South, some southern regions saw welcome precipitation around the 7th to the 8th. Snow fell across south Texas, where some drought conditions improved. Corpus Christi recorded snow for just its ninth day on record, with 1-3 inches falling around the area. However, it remained dry around the rest of the South, leading to the expansion of abnormally dry (D0) conditions across the Texas Panhandle. Moderate drought also spread westward across the Oklahoma Panhandle. Since October 6, Boise City has received a total of only 0.02 inch of precipitation. Normal for this period is about 2 inches. Numerous stations in the Panhandle reported no precipitation in the past two months. The lack of precipitation led to degraded conditions across other parts of central and northern Texas as well as parts of Oklahoma. The area of extreme drought (D3) creeped west into southeast Oklahoma and eastern Texas. Read more at droughtmonitor.unl.edu.
