Drought Fading with Good Rains in Northwestern Oklahoma Last Week- Here's The MapFri, 10 Feb 2012 05:37:53 CST
Drought relief continues to move across Oklahoma. The drought map released Thursday morning (the map you see above) shows the good work in northwestern Oklahoma after last week's 3-5 inches of rain. A somewhat rare two-category improvement from "extreme" to "moderate" drought was indicated from northern Roger Mills through Woods County. A one-category improvement was also established from Dewey County up through Grant and Kay Counties.
Gary McManus, Associate State Climatologist with the Oklahoma Climatological Survey poses the question "Is it the end of drought? No, but it's a great step for those areas in that part of the state that continued to miss the big rainfalls. Now we need to spread that to the northwest and south."
