A historic blizzard that dumped 19 inches of snow on parts of the Texas panhandle has helped relieve drought conditions that have persisted for two years, but the improvements will only be short term unless the region gets a wet spring, according to meteorologists.
In it’s latest weekly report, the U.S. Drought Monitor says the entire panhandle remains dry, with some areas still in extreme or exceptional drought. The map shows that except for a small part of West Texas and an area of East Texas, the state remains either abnormally dry or in drought.
