WINKLER COUNTY - Monday's storms were apparently not enough to lift the burn ban in Winkler County.

On Tuesday morning, County Commissioners extended the ban for the next 90 days.

Even with all the rain Winkler County received, it still isn't enough to lift the area out of the drought.

The county has said the restrictions could be lifted earlier if the Texas Forest Service deems the conditions no longer exist.
