Drought Returns to Oklahoma- Three Percent of State in Moderate Drought- Rains Today Not Likely to Help Drought Impacted Areas

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 05:58:40 CST

Drought Returns to Oklahoma- Three Percent of State in Moderate Drought- Rains Today Not Likely to Help Drought Impacted Areas Oklahoma once again has drought inside its borders as the latest Drought Monitor shows that three percent of Oklahoma has in D1 which is moderate drought or the lowest drought indicator. Oklahoma State Climatologist Gary McManus writes in his latest Mesonet Ticker that "we have our first drought in the state since Nov. 24, 2015, and it is only 3% of the state. But abnormally dry weather does cover 31% of the state so there is room for that drought to stretch its legs if rain doesn't pick up across the NW third of the state."


In the immediate future- rain is in the state forecast, but will not help the areas that are most dry. Jed Castles with News9 KWTV in Oklahoma City offers this look below of where we are on rain over the next 24 hours.
