Fading El Nino could extend Texas drought
from The Dallas Morning News
The Aussies say El Niño — the hoped-for rainmaker for drought-plagued North Texas — has mostly fizzled out in the Pacific Ocean. That might be good news Down Under, but it’s not exactly what Texas water providers want to hear. And the U.S. Climate Prediction Center’s latest seasonal drought forecast shows much less promise for improvements in Texas than it did a couple of months ago. Areas that expected to see the five-year drought ease or even end are now looking at continued or possibly worsening drought in the coming months.
