The lowest lake in North Texas is Lake Bridgeport.  Take a look at how the lake has dropped in the past year.



The drought continues to worsen across the state and here in North Texas.  Here is the latest drought update.  Areas along and south of I_20 are now in the Severe drought category.


If your area is in the peach, orange, red, or dark red color you are considered to be in a drought.  The arrow shaded in yellow is considered to be dry, but not officially in a drought.


Humidity will be increasing thru the weekend and by Sunday it will feel pretty sticky.  There will be a small chance of a pop-up thunderstorm in the afternoon on Sunday.
