AUSTIN -- The latest drought monitor map came out Thursday morning. It shows no change for Central Texas from last week.

Most of the area continues to be in moderate drought, though Gillespie County is still in severe to extreme drought.

Parts of Llano, Burnet, Williamson, and Travis Counties are abnormally dry, however the map looked much worse two weeks ago. 

The rains Central Texas has seen over the past few weeks have helped a little. Even still, we have a long way to go in order to end the agricultural drought. The lakes, currently 32 and 34 percent full, need much more rain.

Out of the entire state, Central Texas needs the most rain -- more than seven inches.
