Are we heading toward drought?

Although the past couple of years have brought relief to drought conditions over the county and much of southeast Texas, a dry trend beginning in early November has some people worried that we may be headed back to the severe drought experienced in 2010-11.

From Nov. 1 through Jan. 15, Galveston received but 4 inches of rain, which is 5.87 inches less than would normally be expected for that time span. League City received 4.35 inches during that same period, which is 6.09 inches below normal.
