Nearly all of Texas is iin a serious drought, and nearly two- thirds of the state -- inclluding most of Central Texas and the lower Colorado River basin -- is entering the summer season in exceptional drought, the most severe category. The eight months from October 2010 through May 20 11 have been the driest eight-month period on record for Texas since 1895. Rainfall in Austin was 38 percent of normal, and Wharton rainfall was 30 per- cent of normal. Temperatures also have hit triple digits earlier than usual this year, with three 100+-de- gree days in Austin in May. The period from March through May in Austin was the hottest such period on record, punctuated by the hottest April Austin has experienced. The trend for hot, dry conditions is continuing in June. As a result of extremely dry conditions, not much water is flowing into the Highland Lakes. In fact, the lakes are re- ceiving even less water this year than they did during the same time period of 2009. Since January 2011, about 50 .percent less water has flowed into the Highland Lakes than did during ihe same period in 2009. Measured inflows from October 2010 through May 2011 have been the lowest for that eight-month period since the record began in 1942. With little water coming in, the region's two water supply reservoirs, lakes Travis and Buchanan, together are about Please See "Drought" Dean W.
