USA Drought Map

  It's early days yet, but the Climate Prediction Center is normally very accurate. This is forecasting worsening drought conditions in TX, AZ, NM, western KS and more. Not good.

My hunting partner outside of San Antonio sez he has had about 1 inch of rain during the last 2 months. My bro west of Austin sez he has had less than that.

  My hunting partner pokes around west of San Antonio for quail and he is getting pretty gloomy: he's found no quail in the last 2 weeks.

  No rain until May in Texas will be really bad for the first nesting time for bobs. Hopefully the second time around will be better.

If the map is accurate then the prairies should have good nesting success.  Glass half full I guess.

Lubbock is at 2nd longest period in the records without measurable precip - about 100 days.  Our stretch here west of Lubbock is about 10 days longer.  We have a chance next week for about a tenth.

It has been extremely dry here in NE KS. We have not had a good rain since last May.

While we were severely in drought last fall it has moderated since Christmas and I think busted this weekend. Water everywhere, still raining some and schools on delay for flooded roads.

My part of VA is certainly not in a drought. Don't know where this data came from. .
