2/3 of Texas under Exceptional Drought Classification; Rain may come Tonight
Just under two thirds of Texas is under the exceptional category of drought conditions as of November 1st. It is important to note that not one area of Texas is not in a drought category.
The good news is that the 12z RUC from today is forecasting rain to occur in the Texas region, affecting some portions of the exceptionally dry areas.
This will not end the drought, but may be a good, very small first step out of this exceptional drought category.
