Start Date: 8/7/2018 -  
Very few pastures in Central Texas had any remaining available grazing, and most stock tanks were very low or dry. Producers were culling cattle. Corn and milo stalks were being baled for livestock feed. Livestock were being supplemented. Dryland cotton fields deteriorated rapidly over the past two weeks and were showing heat and drought stress. Fire hazard conditions continued. The Bryan-College Station Eagle (Texas), Aug. 7, 2018 Still very dry. During the last week we have received only 0.94 inches of rain. Fire danger is extreme and burn ban in effect. Stock tanks are drying up. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Cisco 4.1 N on 8/15/2018
