I’m currently seeing and have been seeing that the drought In Texas which started in 2011 will continue on for another 2 years. This will go into the end of summer, 2013. However, the “good” news is that the level of drought will be only half of what it was during the summer of 2011.
What I see is not the complete lack of rain, but rather that the rain will be light and not enough to replenish what the needs will be. While we will have sprinkles during some of this time, it will be below the normal level and we will officially continue to be under drought conditions.
Here in Texas, we had one strong rain in Oct, 2011. I’m seeing only sprinkling from then on until possibly in March, 2012. But, very little again repeating the 2011 Spring and Summer, with some sprinkling during that time, but not enough to be normal.
