Drought in Texas has expanded and worsened during early 2022. As of April 12, the U.S. Drought monitor showed nearly 50% (49.1%) of the state in extreme (D3) or exceptional (D4) drought, the highest percentage since February of 2012. During this webinar, John Nielsen-Gammon, the Texas State Climatologist, and Victor Murphy, from the National Weather Service, talked about current drought conditions, the long-range forecast, and the impact recent precipitation might have on drought conditions across the state.
