Southern Plains Drought Early Warning System

Conditions for the week of June 5-11, 2019

Widespread showers and thunderstorms impacted the region with the heaviest rainfall accumulations observed across portions of the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Texas where 5-to-14 inches of rain fell. Elsewhere in the Southern Plains, rainfall totals were generally less than 5 inches across Oklahoma. Some pockets of dryness still exist, however, in north-central New Mexico that missed some of the precipitation events throughout the cool season.
