DROUGHT INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CORPUS CHRISTI TX
506 PM CDT THU JUN 5 2014

...MORE WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL IMPROVES DROUGHT
CONDITIONS OVER THE VICTORIA AREA AND NORTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF
SOUTH TEXAS...

...AT LEAST A 65 PERCENT CHANCE FOR EL-NINO CONDITIONS TO DEVELOP
DURING THE SUMMER WITH MODERATE EL-NINO BY THE END OF 2014...

...UPDATED JUNE RAINFALL OUTLOOK SAYS BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION
MOST LIKELY OVER MOST OF SOUTH TEXAS...


.SYNOPSIS...
MORE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL...HEAVY IN SOME LOCATIONS...CONTINUED
OVER PORTIONS OF SOUTH TEXAS DURING THE PAST TWO WEEKS. STORMS
COMING OUT OF MEXICO INTO THE RIO GRANDE PLAINS AND BRUSH COUNTRY
BROUGHT WIDESPREAD 1 TO 2 INCH RAINFALL AMOUNTS TO MUCH OF WEBB
COUNTY ON MAY 22 AND MAY 23...WITH LOWER AMOUNTS FARTHER EAST AS
THE STORMS DISSIPATED. A POTENT AND SLOW-MOVING UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM
AND FRONTAL BOUNDARY BROUGHT SCATTERED 1 TO 2 INCH RAINFALL
AMOUNTS TO MUCH OF THE WESTERN AND NORTHERN COASTAL BEND...AS WELL
AS PORTIONS OF THE VICTORIA AREA ON MAY 26 AND MAY 27...WITH
ISOLATED AMOUNTS OF AROUND 6 INCHES OVER NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE
VICTORIA AREA (MAINLY ON MAY 26). SOME OF THESE STORMS BROUGHT
SEVERE WEATHER TOO...ESPECIALLY IN THE CITY OF ALICE WHERE AN EF-1
TORNADO OCCURRED. FINALLY...BEFORE THE UPPER LOW MOVED EAST OF
SOUTH TEXAS...IT HELPED PRODUCE MORE CONVECTION ON MAY 31...WITH
SCATTERED RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES OVER THE EASTERN
COASTAL BEND AND OVER PORTIONS OF THE VICTORIA AREA.

ALL IN ALL...THE LAST TWO WEEKS PROVIDED MOST OF THE HYDROLOGIC
SERVICE AREA (HSA) WITH AT LEAST 1/2 INCH OF PRECIPITATION (AN
EXCEPTION TO THIS WAS SOME COASTAL AREAS). SCATTERED RAINFALL
AMOUNTS BETWEEN 2 TO 4 INCHES WERE OBSERVED OVER MOST OF WEBB
COUNTY...AND MUCH OF THE NORTHERN COASTAL BEND AND VICTORIA AREA.
ISOLATED RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 5 TO 6 INCHES WERE OBSERVED OVER
PORTIONS OF GOLIAD COUNTY AND NORTHERN VICTORIA COUNTY. MOST OF
THE RIO GRANDE PLAINS...CENTRAL AND NORTHERN COASTAL BEND...AND
VICTORIA AREA RECEIVED ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL DURING THIS
INTERVAL...WITH SOME LOCATIONS RECEIVING MORE THAN 200 PERCENT OF
THEIR NORMAL RAINFALL. HOWEVER...MUCH OF THE COASTAL AREAS
RECEIVED NO MORE THAN 25 PERCENT OF THEIR NORMAL RAINFALL DURING
THE MONTH. THUS...DROUGHT CONDITIONS ONLY IMPROVED OVER NORTHERN
AND NORTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF SOUTH TEXAS...WITH LITTLE TO NO
CHANGE ELSEWHERE.

SUMMARY OF IMPACTS...
STATE AND LOCAL ACTIONS.
ACCORDING TO THE TEXAS FOREST SERVICE BURN BAN MAP OF JUNE 4...BEE
COUNTY HAS A BURN BAN IN EFFECT. NO OTHER SOUTH TEXAS COUNTIES ARE
UNDER BURN BANS. NEVERTHELESS...RESIDENTS PLANNING ON BURNING
SHOULD CONTACT COUNTY OFFICIALS TO ENSURE THAT BURNING IS
ALLOWED...AND ALSO TO SEE IF ANY RESTRICTIONS ON HOW AND WHEN TO
BURN ARE IN EFFECT. IF BURNING IS ALLOWED...BE SURE IT IS NOT DONE
DURING WINDY DAYS WITH LOW HUMIDITY...AS THIS COULD RESULT IN A
FIRE WHICH COULD EASILY GET OUT OF CONTROL.

ALSO...THERE HAVE BEEN NO CHANGE IN WATER RESTRICTIONS FOR CORPUS
CHRISTI AND VICTORIA. THE CITY OF LAREDO IS UNDER STAGE 1 WATER
RESTRICTIONS.

ACCORDING TO THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI WATER PAGE...THE CITY
REMAINS IN STAGE 1 OF THE DROUGHT CONTINGENCY PLAN...AND WILL
REMAIN SO UNTIL THE COMBINED RESERVOIR CAPACITY FOR CHOKE CANYON
AND LAKE CORPUS CHRISTI FALLS BELOW 40 PERCENT. UNDER STAGE
1...RESIDENTS ARE ASKED TO VOLUNTARILY CONSERVE WATER WHENEVER
POSSIBLE. FOR THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI...WATERING IS NO LONGER
LIMITED TO ONCE A WEEK. HOWEVER RESIDENTS SHOULD CONTINUE TO LIMIT
THE USE OF WATER OUTSIDE DURING THE HOURS OF 10 AM AND 6 PM. THE
CITIES OF PORTLAND AND INGLESIDE ARE ALSO IN STAGE 1 RESTRICTIONS.

GENERAL USES AND RESTRICTIONS UNDER STAGE 1:

* WATER IS NO LONGER LIMITED TO ONCE A WEEK
* NO WATERING OR OUTSIDE WASHING DURING THE HOURS OF 10 AM AND 6
  PM.

ADDITIONAL MINOR DIFFERENCES ARE OBSERVED AT PORTLAND AND INGLESIDE.
FOR MORE INFORMATION FOR THESE LOCATIONS...PLEASE VISIT:

HTTP://PORTLANDTX.COM
HTTP://INGLESIDETX.GOV

THE CITY OF VICTORIA STILL ENCOURAGES RESIDENTS TO CONSERVE WATER
VOLUNTARILY.

THE CITY OF LAREDO IS UNDER STAGE 1 WATER RESTRICTIONS. THESE
WATER RESTRICTIONS STILL ALLOW RESIDENTS TO WATER THEIR LANDSCAPES
AT ANY TIME...BUT RESIDENTS ARE ASKED TO VOLUNTARILY CONSERVE
WATER.

WITH CONTINUED WARM WEATHER OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS...
RESIDENTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO LIMIT THEIR WATERING. WATER
CONSERVED NOW CAN BE USED FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS...WHEN LAWNS NEED
MORE WATER THAN NOW. IF WATER IS WASTED NOW... IT MAY NOT BE
AVAILABLE IN THE SUMMER MONTHS...DUE TO MORE STRINGENT WATER
RESTRICTIONS. CONTINUE TO WATER ONCE A WEEK...OR BEGIN TO CURTAIL
WATERING TO A FEW TIMES A WEEK...AND GRADUALLY ALLOW YOUR LAWN TO
ADJUST TO ONCE A WEEK WATERING. WHEN ADEQUATE RAINFALL IS RECENTLY
RECEIVED...WATERING SHOULD BE OMITTED FOR SEVERAL DAYS UNTIL
WATERING BECOMES NECESSARY. RESIDENTS WITH SPRINKLER SYSTEMS
SHOULD MONITOR THEIR WATERING TO ENSURE THEIR SYSTEM IS WATERING
THE LAWN AND NOT THE SIDEWALK OR STREET. ALSO...USE A SPRINKLER
WHICH MAKES LARGER WATER DROPLETS...AND AVOID WATERING ON WINDY
DAYS.

RESIDENTS SHOULD REMAIN INFORMED ON ANY WATER RESTRICTIONS WHICH
MAY BE IMPOSED FOR THEIR LOCATION...AS ANY VIOLATIONS CAN RESULT
IN SIGNIFICANT FINES. MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO CONSERVE WATER
(AND DROUGHT CONTINGENCY PLANS) IS FOUND ON THE CITY WEBSITES
LISTED AT THE END OF THIS STATEMENT.

ADDITIONAL LOCATIONS WITHIN THE HSA HAVE MAINTAINED EITHER
MANDATORY OR VOLUNTARY RESTRICTIONS ON THEIR LOCAL PUBLIC WATER
SYSTEMS (PWS). ACCORDING TO THE TEXAS COMMISSION ON ENVIRONMENTAL
QUALITY (TCEQ)...HERE IS A LIST OF LOCATIONS WITHIN THE HSA (AS OF
JUNE 4 2014) WHICH HAVE WATER RESTRICTIONS:

AGRICULTURAL AND SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS.
DUE TO THE CONTINUED WIDESPREAD RAINFALL RECEIVED DURING THE PAST
COUPLE OF WEEKS...SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS IMPROVED OVER MUCH OF
SOUTH TEXAS. THE LATEST SOIL MOISTURE ANOMALY MAP FROM THE
CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (VALID ON JUNE 4) SHOWS NEAR NORMAL SOIL
MOISTURE CONDITIONS (+20 MM TO -20 MM) OVER MOST EASTERN PORTIONS
OF THE HSA...WITH DRIER CONDITIONS (-20 MM TO -40 MM) OVER
WESTERN AREAS. HOWEVER...SOIL MOISTURE RANKING PERCENTILES REMAIN
BETWEEN 30 AND 70 PERCENT OVER ALL OF SOUTH TEXAS. CROP MOISTURE
INDICES (VALID ON MAY 31) IMPROVED...WITH WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE
HSA NOW SLIGHTLY DRY/FAVORABLY MOIST (-0.9 TO +0.9) AND EASTERN
PORTIONS OF THE HSA ABNORMALLY MOIST (+1.0 TO +1.9).

ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE IN THE AGRI-LIFE TODAY
(WWW.TODAY.AGRILIFE.ORG)...MANY PARTS OF THE STATE HAVE FINALLY
RECEIVED SOME BADLY NEEDED RAIN...AND THOSE WITH RAINWATER
HARVESTING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN REAPING THE REWARDS OF THIS
RAINFALL...SAID TEXAS A&M AGRILIFE WATER RESOURCES EXPERTS.
"RAINWATER HARVESTING IS A TIME-TESTED AND EFFECTIVE MEANS OF
WATER CONSERVATION AND IRRIGATION"...SAID BILLY KNIFFEN...RETIRED
TEXAS A&M AGRILIFE WATER RESOURCE SPECIALIST. "AND WITH DROUGHT
AFFECTING MUCH OF TEXAS...INTEREST IN RAINWATER HARVESTING FROM
INDUSTRY...VARIOUS LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT AND HOMEOWNERS IS
INCREASING. PEOPLE IN GENERAL ARE BECOMING MORE RECEPTIVE TO
IMPLEMENTING THESE PRACTICES". ONE INCH OF RAINWATER DRIPPING FROM
A 1,500-SQUARE-FOOT ROOF CAN EASILY CATCH 600 GALLONS OF
WATER...THE EXPERT NOTED. SINCE LAWN IRRIGATION ACCOUNTS FOR A
MAJOR PART OF WATER USE IN URBAN AREAS...SOME ARE INVESTIGATING
RAINWATER HARVESTING EFFICIENCY RELATED TO THIS SPECIFIC
APPLICATION. EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH AND HANDS-ON DEMONSTRATIONS ON
HOW TO CONSTRUCT RAINWATER HARVESTING SYSTEMS...SUCH AS A BASIC
HOME RAINWATER SYSTEM DO-IT-YOURSELF WORKSHOP...ARE A LARGE PART
OF TEXAS A&M AGRILIFE EFFORTS TOWARD GREATER STATEWIDE WATER
CONSERVATION.

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WAS OBTAINED FROM THE MAY RANCH DIARY:
* WE ENDED THE MONTH WITH (32) ANIMAL UNITS ON THE PLACE...WHICH
  REPRESENTS ABOUT 114% OF THE NEW ESTIMATED CARRYING CAPACITY OF
  (28) FOR OUR RANCH DURING A DROUGHT YEAR (RAINFALL LESS THAN
  20.00 INCHES).

* CONCERNING DEER HUNTERS...NOW THAT AN EL NINO EPISODE IS HIGHLY
  FAVORED FOR LATER THIS YEAR...IT SHOULD BE A WONDERFUL
  OPPORTUNITY TO PLANT OATS AS A DEER ATTRACTANT.

* UNFORTUNATELY...SOME OF THE HAY WE PAID SO DEARLY FOR CONTAINED
  A BAD...BAD NEMESIS - JOHNSON GRASS. IT WAS INCLUDED IN THE
  BALES...BUT WAS NOT LISTED ON THE LABELS. JOHNSON GRASS CAN
  BECOME POISONOUS TO LIVESTOCK...SO IT SHOULD BE ELIMINATED IF AT
  ALL POSSIBLE.

* WE HAVE SPRAYED ABOUT THREE-QUARTERS OF THE GRASS CELLS WITH
  HERBICIDE TO CONTROL THE RE-GROWTH OF MESQUITE AND HUISACHE
  THORN BUSHES.

* THE CATTLE ARE FAT AND SASSY...WISH WE HAD A FEW MORE. PRICES
  ARE SKY-HIGH AT THE AUCTION BARN.

* THE GRASSHOPPERS REALLY DISAPPEARED WHEN THE RAINS CAME.

* THE HARVEST WAS RIGHT ON SCHEDULE. THE SEVENTEEN TOMATO PLANTS
  PRODUCED ENOUGH FRUIT TO KEEP US AND MANY OF OUR NEIGHBORS
  SUPPLIED.

THE TEXAS CROP AND WEATHER REPORTS FOR MAY 27 AND JUNE 3 CONTAINED
THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

FOR THE COASTAL BEND DISTRICT:

* SOME COTTON WAS BEING SPRAYED FOR THRIPS...MAINLY DUE TO THE
  SLOW PROGRESS OF THE CROP AND THE FACT THAT THE SEED TREATMENT
  PROTECTION HAS ENDED.

* FIELD WORK HAS STOPPED TEMPORARILY DUE TO WET CONDITIONS IN
  SOME AREAS. SOME COTTON FIELDS HAD STANDING WATER...BUT COTTON
  WILL TOLERATE STANDING WATER IN ROWS BETTER THAN GRAIN CROPS.
  THE BIGGEST IMPACT TO COTTON WAS EXPECTED TO BE FROM DELAYS IN
  MAKING INSECTICIDE AND HERBICIDE APPLICATIONS. COTTON AND CORN
  WERE IN GOOD CONDITION WITH SOME PRODUCERS SPRAYING COTTON FOR
  FLEAHOPPERS WHERE FIELD CONDITIONS PERMITTED.

* SOME SUGARCANE APHIDS WERE OBSERVED IN HIGH NUMBERS IN A FEW
  FIELDS IN A FEW AREAS.

* FIELDS WERE BEING MONITORED CLOSELY FOR THE PEST. SOME GROWERS
  ELECTED TO APPLY AN INITIAL TREATMENT FOR THE PEST. WEED
  PRESSURE INCREASED DUE TO THE SHOWERS...AND GROWERS WERE
  APPLYING CONTROLS.

* EARLY HAY HARVESTS WERE ONGOING...AND PRODUCERS WERE APPLYING
  FERTILIZER TO FIELDS IN ANTICIPATION OF WETTER WEATHER. MUCH
  OF SORGHUM WAS HEADING...AND SOME WAS STARTING TO COLOR. MUCH OF
  THE CROP HAS BEEN SPRAYED FOR SUGARCANE APHID...BUT MAJOR
  INFESTATIONS WERE ONLY OBSERVED IN A FEW FIELDS.

* CATTLE RESPONDED RAPIDLY TO GREEN GRASS AND NICE WEATHER...AND
  LOOKED BETTER THAN THEY HAVE IN SEVERAL MONTHS.

* SUNFLOWERS WERE BEING SPRAYED FOR HEAD MOTH AND WERE IN FULL
  BLOOM.

* WARM-SEASON GRASSES WERE GROWING DUE TO ALL THE MOISTURE AND
  RISING TEMPERATURES. RANGELAND AND PASTURES CONTINUED TO
  IMPROVE...BUT FOR THOSE AREAS THAT RECEIVED LITTLE RAIN...MORE
  MOISTURE WILL BE NEEDED SOON FOR IMPROVEMENT TO CONTINUE. MANY
  STOCK TANKS WERE FULL...THOUGH SOME WERE ONLY AT 50 PERCENT
  CAPACITY.


FOR THE WESTERN AREAS (CONSIDERED PART OF THE SOUTH DISTRICT):

* RECENT MOISTURE HELPED RANGELAND AND PASTURES...AND IMPROVED
  SOIL MOISTURE.

* IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE REGION...HARVESTING OF POTATOES AND
  WHEAT CONTINUED...COTTON PLANTING WAS COMPLETED...PEANUT
  PLANTING BEGAN...AND SOME BERMUDA GRASS WAS CUT AND BALED.
  SUPPLEMENTAL FEEDING OF CATTLE CONTINUED AS FORAGE SUPPLIES
  REMAINED SHORT IN SOME AREAS. LIVESTOCK PRODUCERS CONTINUED TO
  SUPPLY SUPPLEMENTAL FEED AT A STEADY PACE. CATTLE BODY CONDITION
  SCORES REMAINED LOW TO FAIR.

* ALSO IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE REGION...SOME AREAS REPORTED
  COTTON WAS HAILED OUT AND CORN LODGED. THE HARVESTING OF
  WHEAT...POTATOES AND WATERMELONS RESUMED AS SOON AS FIELD
  CONDITIONS ALLOWED. CORN WAS IN THE DOUGH STAGE. PEANUT PLANTING
  WAS IN FULL SWING...AND PRODUCERS WERE BALING BERMUDA GRASS HAY.
  OVERALL...SOIL MOISTURE THROUGHOUT THE NORTHERN COUNTIES WAS
  MOSTLY 40 TO 100 PERCENT ADEQUATE...EXCEPT FOR MCMULLEN COUNTY
  WHERE IT WAS SHORT.

* IN THE EASTERN PART OF THE REGION...CROPS WERE PROGRESSING WELL.
  WINTER WHEAT WAS IN FAIR CONDITION...WITH 100 PERCENT
  HARVESTED. CORN WAS IN FAIR CONDITION AS WAS SORGHUM...AND 100
  PERCENT OF SUNFLOWERS WERE PLANTED. CATTLE INVENTORIES REMAINED
  AT AN ALL-TIME LOWS. SOIL MOISTURE RANGED FROM 60 TO 100 PERCENT
  ADEQUATE IN BROOKS AND JIM WELLS COUNTIES AREAS TO 80 PERCENT
  SHORT IN THE KLEBERG AND KENEDY COUNTIES.

* JIM WELLS COUNTY REPORTED A TORNADO CAUSED SOME ROW CROP DAMAGE.
  MOST ROW CROPS WERE NOT AFFECTED BY THE TORRENTIAL RAIN AND
  STRONG WINDS AND BENEFITED FROM THE MOISTURE.

* IN THE WESTERN COUNTIES...PLANTING WAS COMPLETED...AND PRODUCERS
  WERE HARVESTING BERMUDA GRASS HAY. WHEAT AND ONION HARVESTING
  WERE BOTH VERY ACTIVE. COTTON AND CORN CONTINUED TO DEVELOP WELL
  WITH LITTLE INSECT PRESSURE. WHEAT PRODUCERS REPORTED YIELDS TO
  BE GOOD TO ABOVE AVERAGE.

* ALSO IN THE WESTERN COUNTIES...CORN AND COTTON WERE IN GOOD
  CONDITION...CABBAGE HARVESTING RESUMED...ONION HARVESTING
  CONTINUED...AND PECAN PRODUCERS REPORTED GOOD CROP CONDITIONS
  WITH LITTLE INSECT PRESSURE. SOIL MOISTURE WAS 50 TO 80 PERCENT
  SHORT IN DIMMIT...WEBB AND ZAPATA COUNTIES.


FIRE DANGER HAZARDS.
ACCORDING TO THE 5 DAY AVERAGE FIRE DANGER MAP FROM THE TEXAS
INTER-AGENCY COORDINATION CENTER (TICC) ON JUNE 4...THERE IS A
LOW TO MODERATE FIRE DANGER OVER ALL OF SOUTH TEXAS. RECENT
RAINFALL...ALONG WITH MODERATE HUMIDITY LEVELS AND WINDS HAVE KEPT
THE FIRE DANGER FROM BECOMING HIGH.

COUNTY AVERAGED KEETCH-BYRAM DROUGHT INDICES REMAIN IN THE LOW TO
MODERATE CATEGORIES. ALL COUNTY AVERAGES ARE NOW BELOW 500. AS OF
JUNE 5...THE FOLLOWING KBDI AVERAGES WERE OBSERVED:

 0 TO 200:  NONE.

200 TO 300: JIM WELLS...KLEBERG...WEBB...LIVE OAK...BEE AND
            VICTORIA COUNTIES.

300 TO 400: GOLIAD...MCMULLEN...DUVAL...NUECES...SAN PATRICIO AND
            CALHOUN COUNTIES.

400 TO 500: LA SALLE...ARANSAS AND REFUGIO COUNTIES.

500 TO 600: NONE.

600 TO 700: NONE.

700 TO 800: NONE.

KBDI AVERAGES WILL LIKELY RISE UNLESS ADDITIONAL WIDESPREAD
RAINFALL OCCURS DURING THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO.


RIVER AND HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS.
WITH THE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL RECEIVED DURING THE PAST TWO
WEEKS...RIVER AND CREEK LEVELS IMPROVED OVER SOUTH TEXAS. IN
FACT...MODERATE FLOODING WAS OBSERVED ON THE GUADALUPE RIVER AT
BLOOMINGTON (WITH MINOR FLOODING AT VICTORIA)...WITH MINOR
FLOODING OBSERVED ON THE ATASCOSA RIVER AT WHITSETT. A FEW OTHER
RIVERS AND CREEKS ROSE TO ABOVE CAUTION AND/OR BANKFULL STAGE. AS
OF JUNE 5...MOST RIVER AND CREEK LEVELS ARE NOW AT NORMAL VALUES.
HOWEVER...BELOW NORMAL FLOWS REMAIN ON THE MISSION RIVER...PLACEDO
CREEK...AND THE NUECES RIVER AT TILDEN.

AFTER REACHING FLOOD STAGE ON MAY 29 AND FALLING BELOW FLOOD STAGE
ON MAY 31...FLOWS ON THE GUADALUPE RIVER AT VICTORIA FELL TO BELOW
10 FEET BY JUNE 1...NOW HOVERING BETWEEN 6.5 FEET (703 CFS) AND 7
FEET (892 CFS) OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. AS LONG AS FLOWS
REMAIN ABOVE 150 CFS (ABOUT 4.2 FEET)...THE CITY OF VICTORIA CAN
CONTINUE TO OBTAIN ITS WATER FROM THE RIVER.

ONCE AGAIN (SIMILAR TO EARLY MAY)...MOST OF THE HEAVIER RAINFALL
DID NOT FALL INTO THE CORPUS CHRISTI WATERSHED...SO NOTABLE
RISES AT CHOKE CANYON DAM AND LAKE CORPUS CHRISTI WERE NOT
OBSERVED. HOWEVER...A NOTABLE RISE DID OCCUR AT LAKE TEXANA...WITH
THE LEVEL RISING TO ABOVE 44 FEET (CAPACITY IS 44 FEET). AS OF
JUNE 5 2014...THE LEVEL AT CHOKE CANYON DAM WAS AT 196.1 FEET
(31.8 PERCENT CAPACITY)...WITH LAKE CORPUS CHRISTI AT 91.2 FEET
(80.4 PERCENT CAPACITY). THE COMBINED SYSTEM CAPACITY FOR THE
CORPUS CHRISTI WATER SUPPLY WAS AT 44.9 PERCENT...WHICH IS 1.2
PERCENTAGE POINTS HIGHER THAN ON MAY 22. LAKE TEXANA ROSE 3.0 FEET
TO 44.2 FEET (101.3 PERCENT CAPACITY). COLETO CREEK ROSE 3.08
FEET...WITH THE CURRENT LEVEL AT 97.32 FEET. CANYON DAM ROSE
SLIGHTLY...WITH THE CURRENT LEVEL AT 900.93 FEET (84 PERCENT
CAPACITY)...OR A RISE OF 1.18 FEET SINCE MAY 22. FINALLY...THE
LEVEL AT LAKE AMISTAD WAS 1071.62 FEET (34 PERCENT)...WHICH IS
0.18 FEET LOWER THAN TWO WEEKS AGO. WITH BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL
MOST LIKELY DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS...CORPUS CHRISTI RESERVOIR
LEVELS COULD FALL TO BELOW 40 PERCENT IN A FEW MONTHS...REQUIRING
STAGE 2 WATER RESTRICTIONS.


CLIMATE SUMMARY...
THE VAST MAJORITY OF SOUTH TEXAS SAW ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL DURING
THE MONTH OF MAY...WITH MUCH OF THE VICTORIA AREA AS WELL AS MANY
INLAND PORTIONS OF THE COASTAL BEND AND RIO GRANDE PLAINS
RECEIVING AT LEAST 150 PERCENT OF NORMAL RAINFALL DURING THE
MONTH. HOWEVER...PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERN BRUSH COUNTRY AND
NORTHEASTERN COASTAL COUNTIES SAW NO MORE THAN 90 PERCENT OF THEIR
NORMAL RAINFALL FOR MAY. PORTIONS OF THE VICTORIA CROSSROADS
REGION SAW BETWEEN 6 AND 10 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION DURING MAY.
HOWEVER...PORTIONS OF NORTHWESTERN LA SALLE COUNTY SAW LESS THAN
2 INCHES OF RAIN LAST MONTH.

ALONG WITH THE ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL...MOST OF SOUTH TEXAS SAW
BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES DURING MAY. SIGNIFICANT COLD FRONTS IN
THE BEGINNING AND MIDDLE OF THE MONTH HELPED TO BRING BELOW NORMAL
TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION. FOR THE MONTH OF MAY...THE AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE WAS 1.8 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL AT CORPUS CHRISTI...1.9
DEGREES BELOW NORMAL AT LAREDO...AND 1.4 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL AT
VICTORIA.

THE FOLLOWING TABLE SHOWS THE TOTAL MONTHLY RAINFALL AMOUNTS
THROUGH THE END OF MAY...IN 2014 (THROUGH THE END OF MAY)...AND
FOR THE 2014 WATER YEAR WHICH BEGAN OCTOBER 1 2013. ALL VALUES ARE
IN INCHES...RAINFALL DEPARTURES FROM NORMAL ARE SHOWN IN
PARENTHESIS:

                                                  2014 WATER YEAR
                      MAY 31           2014         10/1/2013 -
                                                    05/31/2014

CORPUS CHRISTI     4.04 (+0.97)     7.10 (-3.17)   11.80 (-4.18)

VICTORIA           7.62 (+2.43)    11.28 (-4.10)   16.34 (-8.60)

LAREDO AIRPORT     3.71 (+1.22)     5.03 (-1.84)    9.55 (-0.71)

FOR THE THREE CLIMATE STATIONS...THE 2014 PERCENTAGE OF NORMAL
RAINFALL THROUGH MAY 31 WAS: 69.1 PERCENT AT CORPUS CHRISTI...
73.3 PERCENT AT VICTORIA...AND 73.2 PERCENT AT LAREDO.

THE 2014 WATER YEAR PERCENTAGES THROUGH MAY 31 2014 ARE: 73.8
PERCENT AT CORPUS CHRISTI...65.5 PERCENT AT VICTORIA...AND 93.1
PERCENT AT LAREDO.

PROSPECTS FOR EL-NINO DEVELOPING SOMETIME DURING 2014 (POSSIBLY
AS EARLY AS SUMMER) REMAIN OPTIMISTIC. ACCORDING TO THE CLIMATE
PREDICTION CENTER (CPC)...ENSO NEUTRAL CONDITIONS CONTINUE OVER
THE EQUATORIAL PACIFIC...AND POSITIVE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE
(SST) ANOMALIES NOW EXIST OVER THE ENTIRE EQUATORIAL PACIFIC...
ESPECIALLY NEAR THE EASTERN PACIFIC. WEEKLY SST INDICES WERE
INCREASING IN THE IMPORTANT NINO 3.4 REGION. AN EVOLUTION TOWARD
EL-NINO SEEMS TO BE OCCURRING.

THE OCEANIC NINO INDEX (ONI) IS BASED ON SST DEPARTURES FROM
AVERAGES IN THE NINO 3.4 REGION...AND IS THE PRINCIPAL MEASURE FOR
MONITORING...ASSESSING AND PREDICTING ENSO. THE MOST RECENT ONI
VALUE (FEBRUARY 2014 - APRIL 2014) IS -0.5 DEGREES CELSIUS. WHILE
THIS IS MORE OF A LA-NINA VALUE...IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE DOWN-
WELLING PHASE OF THE KELVIN WAVE WILL REVERSE THE INDICES TO
POSITIVE VALUES IN THE NEXT MONTH OF TWO. NEARLY ALL MODELS ARE
PREDICTING POSITIVE ONI VALUES BY THE JUNE-JULY-AUGUST TIME
INTERVAL.

CPC FORECASTS A BETTER THAN 65 PERCENT CHANCE OF EL-NINO
DEVELOPING BY SUMMER. MOST MODELS PREDICT EL-NINO/SOUTHERN
OSCILLATION (ENSO) NEUTRAL CONDITIONS OR EL-NINO CONDITIONS DURING
THE REST OF 2014.

PROBABILISTIC ENSO OUTLOOKS CONTINUE TO INCREASE THE PROBABILITY
OF EL-NINO DEVELOPING BY THE END OF 2014. AS OF MAY 8...THE
FORECASTS FOR THE OCTOBER-NOVEMBER-DECEMBER AND NOVEMBER-DECEMBER-
JANUARY INTERVALS INDICATE ABOUT A 78 PERCENT CHANCE FOR EL-NINO
CONDITIONS...NO MORE THAN A 20 PERCENT CHANCE FOR ENSO NEUTRAL
CONDITIONS...AND NO MORE THAN A 3 PERCENT CHANCE FOR LA NINA
CONDITIONS TO DEVELOP.

HOWEVER...IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT IF EL-NINO DEVELOPS THIS
SUMMER...IT WOULD SUPPRESS TROPICAL ACTIVITY. WHILE IT WOULD BE
GOOD NEWS IN MANY WAYS THAT AN EL-NINO WOULD DIMINISH ORGANIZED
TROPICAL SYSTEMS...IT COULD ALSO CURTAIL TROPICAL WAVES OR UPPER
TROPICAL LOWS...WHICH COULD MEAN BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL FOR SOUTH
TEXAS. THE WORST-CASE SCENARIO FOR SOUTH TEXAS WOULD BE EL-NINO TO
DEVELOP IN THE SUMMER...WITH ENSO-NEUTRAL CONDITIONS RETURNING IN
THE FALL AND WINTER.


PRECIPITATION/TEMPERATURE OUTLOOKS...
THE RAINFALL FORECAST FOR THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS (JUNE 6 THROUGH JUNE
12) IS AS FOLLOWS. THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION
MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY OVER PORTIONS OF SOUTH TEXAS...AS AN UPPER
LEVEL TROUGH IMPACTS THE AREA. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL AVERAGE 1/10
OF AN INCH OR LESS. OTHERWISE...NO SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL IS
EXPECTED.

THE TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK FOR JUNE 6 THROUGH JUNE 12 IS AS FOLLOWS.
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE NEAR TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL
THROUGH NEXT THURSDAY.

THE 8 TO 14 DAY OUTLOOK...VALID FOR THE PERIOD JUNE 13 THROUGH JUNE
19...CALLS FOR A GREATER PROBABILITY FOR BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES
AND BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION OVER ALL OF THE HSA.

THE JUNE 2014 OUTLOOKS...ISSUED ON MAY 31...CALLS FOR A GREATER
LIKELIHOOD FOR BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION. THE JUNE 2014
TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK CALLS FOR A GREATER LIKELIHOOD FOR BELOW
NORMAL TEMPERATURES OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN 2/3 OF THE HSA...WITH
EQUAL CHANCES FOR NEAR/ABOVE/BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES OVER THE
REMAINDER OF SOUTH TEXAS.

THE THREE MONTH RAINFALL OUTLOOK FOR THE PERIOD JUNE THROUGH
AUGUST 2014 CALLS FOR A GREATER LIKELIHOOD FOR BELOW NORMAL
RAINFALL AND ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES. THIS DOES NOT BODE WELL
FOR SOUTH TEXAS WITH RESPECT TO DROUGHT RELIEF (OR INCREASING
RESERVOIR LEVELS).

THE MONTHLY DROUGHT OUTLOOK...RELEASED ON MAY 31 2014...CALLS FOR
THE DROUGHT PERSISTING OR INTENSIFYING ACROSS THE DROUGHT STRICKEN
AREAS...DROUGHT CONDITIONS LIKELY TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE ABNORMALLY
DRY AREAS...AND NO CHANGE TO THE DROUGHT FREE AREAS.

THE SEASONAL DROUGHT OUTLOOK HAS NOT CHANGED. RELEASED MAY 15 AND
VALID THROUGH THE END OF AUGUST...THE OUTLOOK CALLS FOR DROUGHT
CONDITIONS TO CONTINUE (IF NOT INTENSIFY) OVER CURRENT DROUGHT
AREAS...AND DEVELOP OVER NON-DROUGHT AREAS.

THE LAGGED SOIL MOISTURE OUTLOOK VALID THROUGH THE END OF AUGUST
2014 STILL CALLS FOR SLIGHTLY ABOVE TO ABOVE NORMAL SOIL CONDITIONS
OVER THE HSA.

IF EL-NINO CONDITIONS DEVELOP IN THE SUMMER...THIS COULD RESULT
IN BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL DURING THE SUMMER AND EARLY FALL.
HOWEVER...IF EL-NINO CONTINUES INTO THE LATE FALL AND
WINTER...THEN SOUTH TEXAS HAS A CHANCE TO RECEIVE ABOVE NORMAL
RAINFALL DURING THE COOL SEASON. SEASONAL CLIMATE OUTLOOKS DO SHOW
A GREATER LIKELIHOOD FOR ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL FROM THE OCTOBER-
NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2014 SEASON THROUGH THE FEBRUARY-MARCH-APRIL
2015 SEASON. HOPEFULLY...EL-NINO DOES CONTINUE IN THE UPCOMING
FALL AND WINTER...ENDING THIS LONG-TERM DROUGHT ONCE AND FOR ALL.


NEXT ISSUANCE DATE...
THE NEXT DROUGHT INFORMATION STATEMENT WILL BE ISSUED ON OR
SHORTLY AFTER JUNE 19 2014.
