Continued Drought 2009
Statement as of 7:10 am CST on January 19, 2009


... Dry conditions continue so far in January of 2009...

The current drought over central and south central Texas began in
September 2007... following a brief wet period from January to
August of 2007... that was preceded by a drought from the Spring
of 2005 through 2006. The dryness since September 2007 has left
parts of central and south central Texas very dry... matching some
of the dry periods decades ago in the 1900s.

Through January 18th... 2009... January 2009 is so far a tie for
the 3rd driest January at del Rio with 1967 and 1999... a tie for
the 11th driest January at San Antonio with 1887... and the 5th
driest January so far at Austin Bergstrom. January on average
is the driest month of the year. The very low relative humidity
and breezy days in January 2009 has only added to the magnitude
of the current drought.

Since the origin of the current drought in September 2007... a review
of records shows that so far September 2007 to January 2009...
through January 18th... 2009... is one of the driest 17 month periods
at Austin and San Antonio and is starting to become one of the drier
such periods at del Rio... after a brief period of heavy rain in
August at del Rio.

The driest 17 month period from September to December... plus the
next years January to December... and the following years January
rainfall... are listed below. Note that the data for September 2007
to January 2009 was as of January 18th... 2009. The September 2007
to January 2009 period is shown to illustrate the magnitude of the
current drought over the past 17 months. Above normal temperatures
and more sunny days than usual since September 2007 has added
to the magnitude of the current drought... by more evaporation than
usual. With 13 more days left in January 2009... the figures for
September 2007 to January 2009 could change.

For San Antonio from 1885 to 2009... the driest September to December...
plus the next January to December... and the following January
rainfall is listed below. Data for 2009 was as of January 18th.

1. 16.61 Sep. 2007 to Jan. 18... 2009
2. 18.22 Sep. 1955 to Jan. 1957
3. 19.03 Sep. 1916 to Jan. 1918
4. 20.26 Sep. 1909 to Jan. 1911
5. 22.47 Sep. 1953 to Jan. 1955

For Austin Mabry from 1856 to 2009... the driest September to December...
plus the next January to December... and the following January
rainfall is listed below. Data for 2009 was as of January 18th.

For del Rio from 1906 to 2009... the driest September to December...
plus the next January to December... and the following January
rainfall is listed below. Data for 2009 was as of January 18th.

A weird clear liquid we have not seen for months is falling from the sky today. Local scientists say it might be rain.

Hopefully you'll get the seasons first tropical storm.
A good 10-15 inches would do wonders.
