After the single driest year in recorded history in 2011, many parts of Texas are still in a drought two years later and the forecast may not be better.

According to the state climatologist, the state may be in the midst of the second-worst drought on record.


Speaking before the Texas House and Senate Natural Resources Committees in February, Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon said that Texas has received only 68 percent of its average rainfall over the past two years, and if the rainfall deficit continues, the current drought could be the worst recorded. Reservoir levels are at their lowest since 1990, he said, and the forecast is for slightly drier conditions than normal in 2013.
