North Texas Drought
The weekend rain was a welcomed relief for many in North Texas. While it may have brought a lot of smiles, Saturday’s shower didn’t bring much help to the area.
The Dallas-Fort Worth area’s streak of 100-degree days is over — just two shy of the record set in 1980. A line of thunderstorms moved in knocking temperatures down into the 70s and 80s.
Climatologists say the La Nina weather conditions that contributed to the drought affecting most of Texas may re-occur later this year and prolong the misery for the state’s farmers and ranchers.
Humans aren’t the only ones languishing in the North Texas heat. The 30+ days of extreme heat and drought conditions have led to higher water temperatures and lower lake levels and fish are dying.
With the heat index pushing to 110-degrees. and above, an Excessive Heat Warning is in effect today through Thursday evening for all of North Texas.
The heat wave is withering flowers and turning green grass brown. The hay crop is already ruined. And now, it’s taking a toll on trees.
