March 13, 2013: The Houston area is abnormally dry and the forecast doesn't look any better. Mary Lee reports.

HOUSTON -

Dry conditions in southeast Texas are a major concern after the area suffered a disastrous drought two years ago.

About 300 million trees died throughout the state in 2011.

As of Wednesday, Houston has a rainfall deficit of 3 inches for 2013. Only about 5 inches of rain have fallen since Jan.1 in Houston.

The Houston area is abnormally dry with counties to the west in a moderate to severe drought. The forecast does not look good with drought conditions likely to persist through at least May.
