The Dallas area is moving into May with the driest January-April period since 1936 under its belt, according to National Weather Service records.

DFW Airport logged just 3.93” of precipitation between Jan 1 and April 30, 2014. This compares very poorly to the average rainfall for the period of 11.50”, meaning 2014 year-to-date (through April 30) received only 34% of its normal rainfall.

The U.S. Drought Monitor issued May 1 shows most of north Texas in a severe to extreme drought as the accompanying map shows.

The outlook for May is for warmer than average temperatures, with equal chances of above, below, or average rainfall.
