Major Cold Front Could Bring Drought-Busting Rains, McManus Says

Major Cold Front Could Bring Drought-Busting Rains, McManus Says
A major cold front headed toward Oklahoma could result in significant rainfall in the next seven day period. Associate State Climatologist Gary McManus says the rain event promises to have a positive effect on drought conditions across much of the state.

If we get a good three-, to four-, to five-inch soaking up across northern Oklahoma-which has been some of the hardest hit part of the state over the last six months or so-its going to do wonders for the drought conditions up there.

Rain chances across northern Oklahoma stood at 30 percent Wednesday and climb as high as 70 percent on Saturday. Rain chances begin to taper off, but remain in the forecast throughout the seven-day period.

Currently, McManus says the Mesonet forecasts are calling for the heaviest rains in northeast Oklahoma where totals of ten inches or more over several days are not out of the question.
