  • Texas, USA. The Lone Star State has now experienced its driest one-year period on record in the past 12 months.
    • Entire Texas is now plagued by drought, with 99.16 percent of the state listed as being in severe, extreme or exceptional drought levels (D2 – D4).
    • “It is possible that we could be looking at another of these multiyear droughts like we saw in the 1950s, and like the tree rings have shown that the state has experienced over the last several centuries,” State Climatologist John Nielson-Gammon told Reuters.
    • Gammon said the current drought began in  in 2005, but was mitigated in 2007 and 2010. However, it could linger on for another 9 years, if the pattern holds.
    • “We’ve had five of the last seven years in drought, and it looks like it is going to be six out of eight,” he said.
    • “We’re very lucky that we had 2007 and 2010, which were years of plentiful rain,” he said. “2010 was the wettest year in record. Were it not for last year, we would be in much worse shape even than we are today.”
    • Texas is currently up to 20 inches of rainfall behind the month’s average, September usually being one of the state’s wettest months, Gammon said.
    • Wildfires. Wildfires in Texas have consumed 3,764,123 acres and 6,919 homes and other structures.
    • YTD Data provided by Texas Forest Service, (TFS) on September 29, 2011
      • Wildfires: 21,546
      • Acres Burned: 3,764,123

YTD Texas wildfire stats by TFS as of September 29, 2011.  Friday September 30, 2011 is forecast to be another extremely hazardous day for wildfires in Texas, TFS said.

  • East Texas Weather Forecast: “Hotter, Drier and More Unstable Today……Winds increasing from the North Tonight with poor humidity recovery…A critical fire weather situation will be developing later today and persist into Friday.” TFS said.
