HOUSTON (AP/CBSDFW.COM) - The U.S. Drought Monitor has reclassified the Dallas-Fort Worth area as being not in drought for the first time since July, making it the first major metropolitan area in Texas to emerge from the most severe one-year drought in state history.

Many residents in North Texas  still face water restrictions, and meteorologists and climatologists warn the situation remains precarious for the summer.

More than half the state in the weekly Drought Monitor map posted online Thursday remains in severe or exceptional stages of drought, and a drier-than-normal spring or hotter-than-usual summer could quickly tip wetter areas back into drought.
