Fall dry spell follows record summer rainfall in Southeast Texas -- Drought has crept back into Southeast Texas after little rain has fallen since a record setting summer. The majority of Southeast texas is in moderate drought with some northern parts in severe drought according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.

Southwest drought disappearing but worries arise -- As of early November the U.S. drought monitor showed 5 percent of Texas in severe or moderate drought and 13 percent in abnormally dry conditions. An unusually dry October in the state means soil is beginning to dry out at the start of the winter crops season. Available soil moisture is also needed for the quality of spring crops. Texas’s weather outlook is somewhat bleak, but crops could be in good condition if certain areas of the state get timely fall and winter rain events.

Texas Crop and Weather Report -- Texas A&M AgriLife expert says warmer than normal temperatures have helped some producers but hurt others who have already planted winter crops. Temperatures were still in the 80s in Uvalde with only one incursion of dry air. Producers who planted spring crops for the fall season are benefitting from the warm conditions. Unlike last year where rain plagued fields saw a high number of crops with disease, mostly dry weather this fall has kept crop disease on the low side.
