With the exception of perhaps a few counties along the Coastal Bend, all of Texas is suffering from a drought.

The lack of rain and recent windy conditions have caused the entire state to be put on wildfire alerts and over the past couple of days, over 300,000 acres of grassland in West Texas burned out of control.

Inasmuch that we have seen dry conditions across East and Northeast Texas, at least were not quite as parched as other parts of the state.  As of this morning (4/12), there are 188 counties in the Lone Star state that are under a burn ban.  If you take a look at the burn ban map, you'll notice that the area that has the least concentration of burn bans is right here in our neck of the woods.

But, we still need rain, a good soaking one.

Our next chance of showers comes this Thursday and Friday.
